1. (File: gasoline.sas7bdat) A researcher is interested to investigate the relationship between gasoline mileage (miles per gallon) to engine displacement and number of carburetor barrels. Create scatter plots for the independent variables, interpret their individual effects on the gasoline mileage, and comment on the relationship, if any. Fit a multiple linear regression model. Write the regression equation and interpret the values of the response variable with respect to both the regressors/predictors. Comment on the significance of the regressors: engine displacement and number of carburetor barrels. Assess the fit of the regression model. Validate test diagnostics for regression analysis on your model and conclude on the adequacy of the fitted regression model. 2. (File: soft_drink.sas7bdat) A soft drink bottler is interested to investigate the vending machine service routes in the distribution system. The interest lies in establishing a relationship between the amount of time required by the route driver to service the vending machines to an outlet. Study the effect of two important variables: the number of cases of product stocked and the distance traveled by the route driver on the delivery time. Create scatter plots for the independent variables, interpret their individual effects on the delivery time, and comment on the relationship, if any. Fit a multiple linear regression model. Write the regression equation and interpret the values of the response variable with respect to both the regressors/predictors. Comment on the significance of the regressors: number of cases of product stocked and the distance traveled by the route driver. Assess the fit of the regression model. Validate test diagnostics for regression analysis on your model and conclude on the adequacy of the fitted regression model. 3. (File: chemical.sas7bdat) The researchers at the National Chemical Laboratory conducted an experiment for the analysis of a chemical process. The data presents the performance of the chemical process as a function of several controllable process variables. Determine the effect of total solvent and hydrogen consumption on the CO2 product obtained. Create scatter plots for the independent variables, interpret their individual effects on the CO2 product obtained, and comment on the relationship, if any. Fit a multiple linear regression model. Write the regression equation and interpret the values of the response variable with respect to both the regressors/predictors. Comment on the significance of the regressors: total solvent and hydrogen consumption. Assess the fit of the regression model. Validate test diagnostics for regression analysis on your model and conclude on the adequacy of the fitted regression model. 4. (File: viscosity.sas7bdat) The kinematic viscosity of a certain solvent system depends on the ratio of two constituent solvents and the temperature. The data set summarizes a set of experimental results. A researcher is interested to investigate the effect of ratio of the two constituent solvents and the temperature on the kinematic viscosity of the solvent system. Create scatter plots for the independent variables, interpret their individual effects on the kinematic viscosity, and comment on the relationship, if any. Fit a multiple linear regression model. Write the regression equation and interpret the values of the response variable with respect to both the regressors/predictors. Comment on the significance of the regressors: ratio of the two constituent solvents and the temperature. Assess the fit of the regression model. Validate test diagnostics for regression analysis on your model and conclude on the adequacy of the fitted regression model.
