This answer was rated:

(TCO E) A sample of 15 computers reveals the following data in years of service (X1, YEARS), whether the computer is a MAC or not (X2, 1=Mac computer, 0=not a Mac computer), and the total number of breakdowns (Y, BREAKDOWNS). The results are found below.

a. Analyze the above output to determine the multiple regression equation.
b. Find and interpret the multiple index of determination (R-Sq).
c. Perform the multiple regression t-tests on βˆ1, βˆ2(use two tailed test with (a = .10). Interpret your results.
d. Predict the total number of breakdowns for a single computer that is a 5-year-old MAC. Use both a point estimate and the appropriate interval estimate. (Points : 31)

You are welcome.
Here they are ...

(a) It is BREAKDOWNS = 0.462 + 1.19 YEARS - 2.68 MAC

(b) R^2 = 94.2%. This means the predictor variables YEARS and MAC in the model are together able to account for about 94.2% of the variation in the BREAKDOWNS

(c) From the output, we see that the p- values for both β1 and β2 are < 0.10. This means both YEARS and MAC are significant predictors of BREAKDOWNS

(d) The predicted number of breakdowns for a 5-year old Mac is 3.755. The prediction interval is [2.131, 5.379]. This means the predicted number of breakdowns for a 5-year old Mac will lie between 2.131 and 5.379, 95% of the time.
