### Refer to the Journal of Applied Psychology (Jan. 2011) study of the determinants of task performance. In addition to x1 = conscientiousness score and x2 = {1 if highly complex job, 0 if not}, the researchers also used x3 = emotional stability score, x4 = organizational citizenship behavior score, and x5 = counterproductive work behavior score to model y = task performance score. One of their concerns is the level of multicollinearity in the data. A matrix of correlations for all possible pairs of independent variables follows. Based on this information, do you detect a moderate or high level of multicollinearity? If so, what are your recommendations? x1 x2 x3 x4 Conscientiousness (x1) Job Complexity (x2).13 Emotional Stability (x3).62.14 Organizational Citizenship (x4).24.03.24 Counterproductive Work (x5)-.23-.23-.02-.62

### Maurice and Lester are twins who have just graduated from college. They have both been offered jobs where their take-home pay would be $2500 per month. Their parents have given Maurice and Lester two options for a graduation gift. Option 1: If they choose to pursue a graduate degree, their parents will give each of them a gift of$35,000. However, they must pay for their tuition and living expenses out of the gift. Option 2: If they choose to go directly into the workforce, their parents will give each of them a gift of $5000. Maurice decides to go to graduate school for 2 years. He locks in a tuition rate by paying$11,500 for the 2 years in advance, and he figures that his monthly expenses will be $1000. Lester decides to go straight into the workforce. Lester finds that after paying his rent, utilities, and other living expenses, he will be able to save$200 per month. Their parents deposit the appropriate amount of money in a money market account for each twin. The money market accounts are currently paying a nominal interest rate of 3 percent, compounded monthly. Lester works during the time that Maurice attends graduate school. Each month, Lester saves $200 and deposits this amount into the$5000 money market account that his parents set up for him when he graduated. If Lester's initial balance is $$u_{0}=5000,u_n$$ is the current month's balance, and $$u_{n−1}$$ is last month's balance, write an expression for un in terms of $$u_{n−1}$$.
