Information and hypothesis testing for slope.
When testing the slope M of the regression line for the population, you usually test that the slope is 0, or H_{0}: M = 0. A slope of 0 indicates that there is no linear relationship between x and y. to perform the ttest for the slope of regression line and s_{e} is the standard error of estimate. Then, use the critical values found in a tdistribution table to make a decision whether to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis. Alternatively, you can use technology to calculate the standardized test statistic as well as the corresponding Pvalue. If P ≤ α, then reject the null hypothesis. If P>α, then do not reject H_{0.}
18. Construct the 95% confident interval for B and M, of the regression line y = Mx = B, for the population using the following inequalities and data.
