Form groups of two or more students to complete the following requirements:
1. Given your findings in Problem 10-28, should Hanks use multiple regression analysis to better understand the cost drivers of overhead costs? Explain your answer.
2. Hanks decides that the simple regression analysis in Problem 10-28 should be extended to a multiple regression analysis. She finds the following result:
♦ Regression 3. Overhead costs = a + (b, X number of academic programs) + (b2 X number of enrolled students)
The coefficient of correlation between number of academic programs and number of students is 0.60. Use the format in Exhibit 10-13 to evaluate the multiple regression model. Should Hanks choose the multiple regression model over the two simple regression models of Problem 10-28?
3. How might the president of Eastern University use these regression results to manage overhead costs?
