Can someone help me (see output 1 below)? 1) What is the difference between the p-value at the bottom right and the p-value after each variable? 2) Which nulhypothesis and alternative hypothesis are used in the t-test to generate these p-values? 3) At a significance level of 0.05, does this mean that only the intercept, population and murder are significant? Does this mean that they are significantly correlated with the expected duration of a life (Life.Exp)? So you could make this model: Life.exp = 7.094E+01 + 6.249E-05(population) - 3.319E-01(murder) 4) What happens if the p-value of the intercept is large (example: 0.267 > 0.05)? How do I have to interpret that (see second output)? 5) What to do if the p-value at the bottom right is large?? Thanks!! Since an error occurs trying to upload attachments on this site, I uploaded the output on an other site: http://postimg.org/image/bhuqkpuar/ (output 1) http://postimg.org/image/6uxvaflpf/ (output 2)
