T F 1. Correlation analysis is a group of statistical techniques used to measure the strength of the relationship (correlation) between two variables.
T F2. A t test is used to test the significance of the coefficient of correlation.
T F 3. One assumption underlying linear regression is that the Y values are statistically dependent. This means that in selecting a sample, the Y values chosen, for a particular X value, depend on the Y values for any other X value.
T F 4. One assumption underlying linear regression is that for each value of X there is a group of Y values that is normally distributed.
T F 5. Trying to predict weekly sales with a standard error of estimate of \$1,955, we would conclude that 68 percent of the predictions would not be off more than \$1,955, 95 percent would not be off by more \$3,910, and 99.7 percent would not be off by more than \$5,865.
T F 6. Explained variation equals total variation minus unexplained variation.
T F 7. In the ANOVA table for regression, the total degrees of freedom is the sum the regression and error degrees of freedom.
T F 8. In a regression ANOVA table, the standard error of the estimate can be computed as the square root of the error mean square.

9. What is the general form of the regression equation?
A) Y' = ab
B) Y' = a + bX
C) Y' = a - bX
D) Y' = abX

10. Which of the following are true assumptions underlying linear regression: 1) for each value of X,

distributions are equal?
A) Only (1) and (2)
B) Only (1) and (3)
C) Only (2) and (3)
