Explain r and r-squared- f-test and interpret its value, Financial Accounting

To decide in what zone should be placed a store which sells video-cassettes, the manager of a firm which sells and rents cassettes makes a study to estimate the demand for each store. The independent variables are: number of inhabitants, average income of inhabitants, number of competitors situated (all these variables refer to a one mile distance) and the price of a video-cassette. You will have a number of 15 supermarkets and the values of all 5 explicative variables. The data are given below:

Demand (yi)

No. of inhabitants (x1i)

Income (x2i)
