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.
