Old Finals

*Note that the confidence interval in 1-d
is incorrect. The correct CI is:*

*0.1493-2.575*0.0282<B<0.1493+2.575*0.0282*

*0.077<B<0.222*

*With 99% confidence, a 1% increase in the
midterm 1 score is associated with a 0.077% and 0.22% increase in the final.*

*Also, 2f should refer back to the initial
equation in 2e.*
