Note that the confidence interval in 1d is
incorrect. The correct CI is:
0.14932.575*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.
