# Regression analysis | Mathematics homework help

Question 1 Assignment: Data needed for questions 3-7 at bottom of page:In a regression analysis with multiple dependent variables, multicollinearity can be caused by:A strong nonlinear relationship between the dependent variable and one or more independent variables.A strong heteroskedastic relationship between the dependent variable and one or more independent variable.A strong linear relationship between two or more independent variables.None of the above.Question 2 Market researcher Ally Nathan is studying the relationships among price, type (classical or steel string), and consumer demand for acoustic guitars. She wants to find the relationship between demand and price, controlling for type.To determine this relationship, she shouldRun a simple regression of the dependent variable demand on the independent variable price and observe the coefficient on price. Run a simple regression of the dependent variable demand on the independent variable type and observe the coefficient on type. Run a multiple regression of the dependent variable demand on the independent variables price and type and observe the coefficient on type. Run a multiple regression of the dependent variable demand on the independent variables price and type and observe the coefficient on price. Question 3 The regression analysis relates US annual energy consumption in trillions of BTUs to the independent variable “US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in trillions of dollars”.The coefficient on the independent variable tells us that:For every additional dollar of GDP, average energy consumption increased by 3,786 trillion BTUs.For every additional trillion dollars of GDP, average energy consumption increased 3,786 BTUs. For every additional trillion BTUs of energy consumption, average GDP increased by $3,786 trillion. For every additional trillion dollars of GDP, average energy consumption increased by 3,786 trillion BTUs. Question 4 The regression analysis relates US annual energy consumption in trillions of BTUs to the independent variable “US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in trillions of dollars”.Which of the following statements is true?The y-intercept of the regression line is 62,695 trillion BTUs. The x-intercept of the regression line is $62,695 trillion.In the event that a thermonuclear war completely halts all economic activity and the US GDP drops to zero, energy consumption will sink to 62,695 trillion BTUs. None of the above. Question 5 The regression analysis relates US annual energy consumption in trillions of BTUs to the independent variable “US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in trillions of dollars”. In a given war, if GDP is $7.4 trillion, expected energy consumption is:Around 91,501 trillion BTUsAround 90,711 trillion BTUs Around 28,016 trillion BTUsAround 467,729 trillion BTUs.Question 6 The regression analysis relates US annual energy consumption in trillions of BTUs to the independent variable “US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in trillions of dollars”.How much of the variation in energy consumption can be explained by variation in the gross domestic product?About 99.99%About 97%About 94%Almost none of the variation in energy consumption can be explained by variation in GDP. Question 7 The data table at the bottom of the page tabulates a pizza paror’s advertising expenditures and sales for 8 consecutive quarters. The marketing manager wants to know how much of an impact current advertising will have on sales two quarters from now.While running a regression with the dependent variable “sales” and the independent variable “advertising lagged by two quarters”, how many data points can she use, given the available data?6 7 8 9For questions 3 through 6:Year GDP (in $trillions) Car Gas Mileage (in mpg) Energy Consumption ( in trillions of BTU)1980 2.796 16 78,4351981 3.131 16.5 76,5691982 3.259 16.9 73,4411983 3.535 17.1 73,3171984 3.933 17.4 76,9721985 4.213 17.5 76,7051986 4.453 17.4 76,9741987 4.743 18 79,4811988 5.108 18.8 82,9941989 5.489 19 84,9261990 5.803 20.2 84,5671991 5.986 21.1 84,6401992 6.319 21 86,0511993 6.642 20.5 87,7801994 7.054 20.7 89,5711995 7.401 21.1 91,5011996 7.813 21.2 94,5211997 8.318 21.5 94,9691998 8.782 21.6 95,3381999 9.274 21.4 96,968US Energy Consumption (in trillion BTUs)vs. Gross Domestic Product ($trillions)Regression StatisticsMultiple R 0.9709R2 0.9426Adjusted R2 0.9394 F test resultsStandard Error 1,889 F value Signif.
