## Assignment 6: Model Evaluation and Selection

Problem Description: Evaluate and select a model based on adjusted R-squares, R-squares consistency, and root mean square error.

Answer: Model M3 is preferred due to the largest adjusted R-square, consistent R-squares, and lower RMSE.

## Assignment 7: Normality of Residuals

Problem Description: Validate the normality assumption for residuals in the preferred model.

Answer: The null hypothesis, assuming normality, is accepted for the residuals of the preferred model.

## Assignment 8: Parameter Estimation and Prediction

Answer: Hence estimated model would be

Situps = 843.83477 + 0.823045*Weight -24.03094*Waist

If we put the value of weight and waist in the above expression, we can get the expected number of situps

Hence Situps = 843.83477 + 0.823045*191 -24.03094*36 = 135.92

Hence the expected number of stiups would be 136 approximately
