## Suppose a statistician built a multiple regression model for predicting the total number of runs scored by a baseball team during a season.

Suppose a statistician built a multiple regression model for predicting the total number of runs scored by a baseball team during a season. Using data for nequals 200 samples, the results below were obtained. Complete parts a through d.

*1. Write the least squares prediction equation for y = total number of runs scored by a team in a season.*

*2. Interpret, practically, beta0 and beta1 in the model. Which statement below best interprets **beta0 ?*

A. For an increase of 1 in any variable, the runs scored changes by beta0.

B. For a change of beta0 in any variable, the runs scored decreases by 1.

C. For a decrease of 1 in any variable, the runs scored changes by beta0.

D. For a change of beta0 in any variable, the runs scored increases by 1.

E. This parameter does not have a practical interpretation.

**3. Which statement below best interprets ****beta1 ?**

A. For a change of beta1 in the number of walks, the runs scored decreases by 1.

B. For a change of ModifyingAbove beta1 in the number of walks, the runs scored increases by 1.

C. For an increase of 1 in the number of walks, the runs scored changes by beta1.

D. For a decrease of 1 in the number of walks, the runs scored changes by ModifyingAbove beta1.

E. This parameter does not have a practical interpretation.

**4. Conduct a test of Upper H 0 : beta1 = 0 against Ha: beta1 != 0 at alpha = 0.01.**

The test statistic is

Form a 90% confidence interval for beta 4. Interpret the results.
