here’s a few statistics questions i’m looking to get some answers

TABLE 12-6

One of the most common questions of prospective house buyers pertains to the average cost of heating in dollars (Y). To provide its customers with information on that matter, a large real estate firm used the following 4 variables to predict heating costs: the daily minimum outside temperature in degrees of Fahrenheit (X1), the amount of insulation in inches (X2), the number of windows in the house (X3), and the age of the furnace in years (X4). Given below are the EXCEL outputs of two regression models.

19. Referring to Table 12-6, the estimated value of the partial regression parameter B1 in Model 1 means that:

a. all else equal, an estimated expected \$1 increase in average heating costs is associated with a decrease in the daily minimum outside temperature by 4.51 degrees.
b. all else equal, a 1 degree increase in the daily minimum outside temperature results in a decrease in average heating costs by \$4.51.
c. all else equal, a 1 degree increase in the daily minimum outside temperature results in an estimated expected decrease in average heating costs by \$4.51.
d. all else equal, a 1% increase in the daily minimum outside temperature results in an estimated expected decrease in average heating costs by 4.51%.

20. Referring to Table 12-6, what is the 90% confidence interval for the expected change in average heating costs as a result of a 1 degree Fahrenheit change in the daily minimum outside temperature using Model 1?

a. [-6.58, -3.65]
b. [-6.24, -2.78]
c. [-5.94, -3.08]
d. [-2.37, 15.12]
