In one year period
Probability of a randomly chosen car to be repaired once = 20 % = 20 100 = 0.2
Probability of a randomly chosen car not to be repaired once =1--.2=0.8
Probability of a randomly chosen car to be repaired twice = 6 % = 6 100 = 0.06
Probability of a randomly chosen car not to be repaired twice =1-0.06 =0.94
Probability of a randomly chosen car to be repaired three or more
= 2 % = 2 100 = 0.02
Probability of a randomly chosen car not to be repaired three or more
=1-0.02=0.98
Probability of a randomly chosen car not to be repaired
= 0.2 × 0.94 × 0.98 = 0.18424
Probability of a randomly chosen car need to be repaired = 1 - Probability of a randomly chosen car not to be repaired
=1-0.18424=0.81576

Suppose you have two sequences of complex numbers a i and b i indexed over the integer numbers such that they are convergent in l 2 norm and a has norm greater than b in the sense
> i | a i | 2 i | b i | 2 .
Suppose moreover they are uncorrelated over any time delay, meaning
i a i b i n ¯ = 0 n Z .
Is it true that the polinomial a ( z ) = i a i z i is greater in absolute value than b ( z ) = i b i z i for any unit norm complex number z?

Let a sample ( x , y ) R 2 n be given, where y only attains the values 0 and 1. We can try to model this data set by either linear regression
y i = α 0 + β 0 x i
with the coefficients determined by the method of least squares or by logistic regression
π i = exp ( α 1 + β 1 x i ) 1 + exp ( α 1 + β 1 x i ) ,
where π i denotes the probability that y i = 1 under the given value x i and the coefficients are determined by the Maximum-Likelihood method. My question is whether the following statement holds true.
Claim: If β 0 > 0 ( β 0 < 0), then β 1 > 0 ( β 1 > 0).
I figure this could be due to the sign of the correlation coefficient.

Is there a method for polynomial regression in 2 D dimensions (fitting a function f ( x , y ) to a set of data X , Y, and Z)? And is there a way to apply a condition to the regression in 2 D that requires all functions fitted to go through the axis line x = 0?

The process to generate the two RVs is as follows. We first draw T from U n i f o r m ( 0 , 1 ) . If T 0.5 we take X = T and draw Y from U n i f o r m ( 0 , 1 ) . Otherwise if T > 0.5 , we take Y = T and draw X from U n i f o r m ( 0 , 1 ) . Running a simulation it seems like X and Y are positively correlated, though intuitively it seems like they should have no effect on each other. What is the explanation?

a. Two variables have a positive linear correlation. Does the dependent variable increase or decrease as the independent variable increases? Explain.
b. Two variables have a negative linear correlation. Does the dependent variable increase or decrease as the independent variable increases?
c. Describe the range of values for the correlation coefficient, r.
d. What does the sample correlation coefficient r measure? Which value indicates a stronger correlation:
r 1 = 0.975 or r 2 = 0.987. Explain, please.

Multiple regression problems (restricted regression, dummy variables)
Q1.
Model 1: Y = X 1 β 1 + ε
Model 2: Y = X 1 β 1 + X 2 β 2 + ε
(a) Suppose that Model 1 is true. If we estimates OLS estrimator b 1 for β 1 in Model 2, what will happen to the size and power properties of the test?
(b) Suppose that Model 2 is true. If we estimates OLS estrimator b 1 for β 1 in Model 1, what will happen to the size and power properties of the test?
-> Here is my guess.
(a) b 1 is unbiased, inefficient estimator. (I calculated it using formula for "inclusion of irrelevant variable" and b 1 = ( X 1 M 2 X 1 ) 1 X 1 M 2 Y where M 2 is symmetric and idempotent matrix) Inefficient means that it has larger variance thus size increases and power increases too.
(b) b 1 is biased, efficient estimator. (I use formular for "exclusion of relevant variable" and b 1 = ( X 1 X 1 ) 1 X 1 Y) Um... I stuck here. What should I say using that information?
Q2.
Let Q and P be the quantity and price. Relation between them is different across reions of east, west, south and north, and as well, for different 4 seasons. Construct a model.
-> Actually, I don't know well about dummy variables. So any please solve this problem to help me.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
