Bob’s Underground, a limited liability corporation specializing in new rap artists (B.U. LLC, rap) has the following demand function:

Q=a+bP+cM+dRQ=◂+▸a+b⁢P+c⁢M+d⁢R

where QQ is the quantity demanded of the most popular product B.U. sells, PP is the price of that product, MM is income, and RR is the price of a related product.  The regression results are:

Independent VariablesCoefficientsStandard Errort-statP-value

Question 1

Do you think these regression results will generate good sales estimates for B.U. LLC, rap?

Select one:

a. Yes; the parameter estimates have expected signs, the individual coefficients (besides the intercept) are statistically significant at the 5% level, and the R2R2 is high.

b. Yes, except that the R2R2 is too low to be convincing. The rest of the results (p-values, expected signs) are satisfactory.

c. No; the estimated coefficient for R2R2 should be positive, not negative.

d. No; though the R2R2 is good and the variables have the expected signs, the estimated coefficients are not statistically significant at the 10% level.
