# Question: Refer to the Johnson Filtration problem introduced in this section

Refer to the Johnson Filtration problem introduced in this section. Suppose that in addition to information on the number of months since the machine was serviced and whether a mechanical or an electrical repair was necessary, the managers obtained a list showing which repairperson performed the service. The revised data follow.


a. Ignore for now the months since the last maintenance service (x1) and the repair person who performed the service. Develop the estimated simple linear regression equation to predict the repair time (y) given the type of repair (x2). Recall that x2 = 0 if the type of repair is mechanical and 1 if the type of repair is electrical.
b. Does the equation that you developed in part (a) provide a good fit for the observed data? Explain.
c. Ignore for now the months since the last maintenance service and the type of repair associated with the machine. Develop the estimated simple linear regression equation to predict the repair time given the repairperson who performed the service. Let x3 = 0 if Bob Jones performed the service and x3 = 1 if Dave Newton performed the service.
d. Does the equation that you developed in part (c) provide a good fit for the observed data?Explain.
