Hello,

I have a little question. I ran a linear regression model. I got strange results. In the ANOVA table, the F test is not significant. As far as I know, that means that ALL beta's are 0. But, when looking at the independent variables, 1 was significant, meaning that it ain't 0...how can that be possible ?

Here is the R output. SPSS did nearly the same thing...

Call:
lm(formula = Y ~ X + size + v7)

Min 1Q Median 3Q Max
