1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I have used OLS and found that: b0 = 6,85 b1 = 3,88 with se= 0,1121 n = 20 Person x claims that b1 = 5 Choose an alternative hypothesis. Does your estimated relationship support this claim? Use a 5 % significance level 3. The attempt at a solution H0 = b1 = 5 H1 b1!= 5 t((1a)/2,18) = 2,101 t = ([tex]\overline{x}[/tex]  h0)/se(b1) = (3,88  5)/(0.1122) = 9.99 t lies not in the interval + 2,101 so I reject H0 Is this correct?

se==? and does "b0 = 6,85" means "b0=6.85"?

Thanks for replying
Se = standard error I'm not sure about what you mean with the last question, but b0 was pointestimated to be 6,85 or 6.85 if the comma was what you asked about.

Hypothesis testing
From what I know of Hypothesis test and student T distribution (from Statistics course which I am still undertaking), your answer is correct ie "t" lies not in the acceptance region but in the left rejection region thus "H0" is discarded and "Ha" is accepted instead.
A very small error that i have noticed is that you were supposed to look for the range of acceptance region corresponding to "significance level =5% " and "degrees of freedom= n1 =19" where as you seem to have looked it up for degrees of freedom = 20 which is not correct and might result in loss of a few marks in exams even though your answer is still correct. So t((1a)/2,18) = 2.09 ..................(At least in the table i posses) I Hope you are satisfied with my reply.
