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.



I hope that helps. Please Rate My Answer (Tip If Happy).
