Best Answer

Ridge regression is used in linear regression to deal with multicollinearity. It reduces the MSE of the model in exchange for introducing some bias.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is alpha in regression analysis?

Alpha is not generally used in regression analysis. Alpha in statistics is the significance level. If you use a TI 83/84 calculator, an "a" will be used for constants, but do not confuse a for alpha. Some may, in derivation formulas for regression, use alpha as a variable so that is the only item I can think of where alpha could be used in regression analysis. Added: Though not generally relevant when using regression for prediction, the significance level is important when using regression for hypothesis testing. Also, alpha is frequently and incorrectly confused with the constant "a" in the regression equation Y = a + bX where a is the intercept of the regression line and the Y axis. By convention, Greek letters in statistics are sometimes used when referring to a population rather than a sample. But unless you are explicitly referring to a population prediction, and your field of study follows this convention, "alpha" is not the correct term here.
