Suppose x1 and x2 are predictor variables for a response variable y.
a. The distribution of all possible values of the response variable corresponding to particular values of the two predictor variables is called a distribution of the response variable.
b. State the four assumptions for multiple linear regression inferences

Step 1
a.
Yes, the distribution of the response or dependent variable is the distribution of all the possible values of the dependent variable corresponding to particular values of two predictor or independent variables.
Although, the assumptions are not actually about only the distribution of the dependent variable, it is about the distribution of y for given x1 and x2.
Step 2
b.
The four assumptions for multiple linear regression inferences are as follows:
Linearity: There must be linear relationship between the independent and the dependent variables which can be tested with the help of scatterplots.
Normality: The multiple linear regression assumes that the residuals are normally distributed, that is, the errors between the values of predictor and the response variables. It can be checked by looking at a histogram or a Q-Q-Plot.
Multicollinearity: It is assumed by the multiple regression that the predictor variables are not highly correlated with each other. It can be tested using correlation matrix or variance inflation factor (VIF). The data should be centered if multicollinearity is found in the data.
Homoscedasticity: According to this assumption, the variance of the error terms is similar across the values of the predictor variables. The cone shaped pattern observed by the scatterplot between residuals and predicted values shows the heteroscedasticity in the data.

Unusual points Each of the four scatterplots that follow shows a cluster of points and one “stray” point. For each, answer these questions:
1) In what way is the point unusual? Does it have high leverage, a large residual, or both?
2) Do you think that point is an influential point?
3) If that point were removed, would the correlation be- come stronger or weaker? Explain.
4) If that point were removed, would the slope of the re- gression line increase or decrease? Explain

Tom is creating a scatterplot that depicts the perimeter and area of a square. (If s is the length of a side of a square, the perimeter is 4s and the area is s2). He sets up these coordinates in which the explanatory variable is the perimeter and the response variable is the area. (10, u) (12, v) (20, w) (24, x) (36, y) (z, 49) a. Find the values of u, v, w, x, y, and z. b. If the points are put on a scatterplot, do they depict a positive or negative correlation?

Answer true or false to the following statements and explain your answers.
a. In multiple linear regression, we can determine whether we are extrapolating in predicting the value of the response variable for a given set of predictor variable values by determining whether each predictor variable value falls in the range of observed values of that predictor.
b. Irregularly shaped regions of the values of predictor variables are easy to detect with two-dimensional scatterplots of pairs of predictor variables, and thus it is easy to determine whether we are extrapolating when predicting the response variable.
