1. In the context of Christensen's Example 1.0.2 and the fake data vector used in
Problem 6 of HW 1, use R matrix calculations to do the following in the (non-fullrank) Gauss-Markov normal linear model.
a) Find 90% two-sided confidence limits for σ .
b) Find 90% two-sided confidence limits for &micro; + τ 1 .
c) Find 90% two-sided confidence limits for τ 1 − τ 2 .
d) Find a p-value for testing the null hypothesis H 0 :τ 1 = τ 2 .
e) Find 90% two-sided prediction limits for the sample mean of n = 10 future
observations from the first set of conditions.
f) Find 90% two-sided prediction limits for the difference between a pair of future
values, one from the first set of conditions (i.e. with mean &micro; + τ 1 ) and one from
the second set of conditions (i.e. with mean &micro; + τ 2 ).

2. In the following, make use of the biomass production data from Problem 2 of HW#4.
Consider a regression of y on x1 , x2 ,K x5 . Use R matrix calculations to do the
following in a full rank Gauss-Markov normal linear model.
a) Find 90% two-sided confidence limits for σ .
b) Find 90% two-sided confidence limits for the mean response under the conditions
of data point #1.
c) Find 90% two-sided confidence limits for the difference in mean responses under
the conditions of data points #1 and #2.
d) Find a p-value for testing the hypothesis that the conditions of data points #1 and
#2 produce the same mean response.
e) Find 90% two-sided prediction limits for an additional response for the set of
conditions x1 = 30, x2 = 5, x3 = 800, x4 = 10000, x5 = 20 .
f) Find 90% prediction limits for the difference in two additional responses under
the two sets of conditions x1 = 30, x2 = 5, x3 = 800, x4 = 10000, x5 = 20 and
x1 = 27, x2 = 6, x3 = 900, x4 = 11000, x5 = 24 .
g) Find a p-value for testing the hypothesis that a model including only x2 and x5 is
