A manager wishes to predict the annual cost (y) of an automobile based on the number of miles (x) driven. The following model was developed: y = $1500 + 0.36x. If a car is driven 15000 miles in a year, the model predicts the annual cost of the car to be:
- $2090
- $3850
- $7400
- $6900

Which of the following is true about multi-collinearity?
- The regression coefficients become clearer and are easier to interpret.
- It is measured using a measure called variance inflation factor (VIF).
- The P-value reduces significantly, leading to rejection of the null hypothesis.
- The effect of an independent variable on the dependent variable becomes difficult to isolate.

Which of the following statement is true based on the following regression equation?
IQ = 4.0 + Reading Label * 5.6
- A unit point change in IQ will result in 9.6-point increase in reading label.
- A unit point change in reading label will increase IQ by 5.6 point.
- Reading label is not a good predictor of IQ.
