I don't get how you figure out if any of the predictors are significant or why. How do you come up with the alpha figures? Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!

What level of significance are you after?

Have a look in the column labelled "p Value", are any of these values less than your preferred level of significance? - December 12th 2010, 01:31 PMSculthorpQuote:

What level of significance are you after?

Answer:

3 predictors, 15 observations, ŷ = 657.053 + 5.7103x1 − 0.4169x2 − 3.4715x3, F = 8.96 with p = .0027, x1 signifcant at α = .01, x3 signifcant at α = .05

So the P value for x1 is less than .01 and the P value for x3 is less than .05.. but where did those preferred level of significance come from? - December 13th 2010, 07:30 AMGuy
There's usually an implicit assumption that you make decisions at a .95 significance level.
