Given the following regression equations, which would explain the most variation in y?a. Y = 15 + 6(x) + e, where x equals 6 and e = .95b. Y = 93 + 4(x) + e, where e equals .8222c. Y= 44 + 8(x) + e, where x equals 4 and e = -.6d. Y = 120 = 2.5(x) + e where e = .1124. Which equation would not represent a simple linear regression equation?a. Y= b0 + b1(x)2 + eb. Y= b0 – b1(x) + ec. Y= b0+ v1(x) + ed. All of the above are simple linear regression models5. Of ten electric bulbs, three are defective but it is not known which are defective.
