The following table gives the variables to work with from the STAR data set. Choose the x1,
x2, and y corresponding to the ﬁfth, sixth, and seventh digits of your student number. As well,
pick any other x you want from either of the ﬁrst two columns of the table to use as your x3.

1. (25 points). Conduct a heteroskedasticity – robust F test of the joint hypothesis that both of your
coefﬁcients from the regression of y on x1 and x2 equal zero. Take a screenshot that shows the
relevant commands and results written to the R console. Interpret the result of your F-test.

2. (25 points) Consider the following (generic) population regression model:
Yi = 0 + 1X1;i + 2X2;i + 3X3;i + ui; i = 1; :::; n (?)

Transform the regression to allow you to easily test the null hypothesis that 1 + 3 = 1. State
the new null hypothesis associated to this transformed regression. Without actually running it in
R, consider what would happen if you ran this regression and conducted this hypothesis test using your variables y, x1, x2, and x3 from the STAR data set. Would you expect to reject or accept the null hypothesis? Why?

transformed model (your version of ? with Y = y, X1 = x1, X=x2, X3 = x3): the square of
x3 and the cube of x3. Show the results run in R. Assuming homoskedasticity of your errors (just this once!), construct the homoskedasticity-only F test of the joint hypothesis that the coefﬁcients on the square of x3 the cube of x3 are both equal to zero. Can you reject this hypothesis? What does rejecting/failing to reject this null hypothesis tell you about the relationship between x3 and y in this speciﬁc multiple regression framework?
