Hi All,

Say we want to linearly regress Y (dependent) against ## X_1, X_2,..., X_n ## (Independent) , all numerical variables to get a model ## Y=a_1X_1+...+a_n X_n ## .

Then we test ## H_0 ## for whether :

##H_0: 0= a_1= a_2 =...=a_n ##

## H_1 : a_i \neq 0 ## for some ## i=1,2,..,n ##

( This is a generalization on the test for equality of 2 means to equality of means, to zero )

Could someone remind me what one does when one rejects ## H_0 ## in terms of deciding, figuring

out which of the ## a_i' ##s is non-zero , other than considering the t-intervals for each of the ##a_i ## 'sand checking whether the intervals (a,b) contain 0, i.e., whether a<0<b ?

EDIT IIRC, we then do a pairwise comparison of means and then consider the intervals?
