### Regression coefficient problem

The question asks that when the case is $X_1 = 1$ (when I am an asian instead of other ethnicity, a dummy variable), then what is the value of $Y$? As the $b_1$ has a P-value much larger than $0.05$, ...

### Insignificant coefficient in a regression

To simplify the question, for example, the interception, which is Beta 0, is +500 and the predictor X1 being 1, Beta1 being negative 100 and other predictors Xi are all 0. i.e. Y = 500 -100 X1. The ...
