Regression analysis describes the relationship between two or more variables. The measure of the explanatory power of the regression model is R2 (i.e. coefficient of determination).

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

Why are your predictions inaccurate using a linear regression model?

There are many possible reasons. Here are some of the more common ones: The underlying relationship is not be linear. The regression has very poor predictive power (coefficient of regression close to zero). The errors are not independent, identical, normally distributed. Outliers distorting regression. Calculation error.

What is multiple and partial correlation?

multiple correlation: Suppose you calculate the linear regression of a single dependent variable on more than one independent variable and that you include a mean in the linear model. The multiple correlation is analogous to the statistic that is obtainable from a linear model that includes just one independent variable. It measures the degree to which the linear model given by the linear regression is valuable as a predictor of the independent variable. For calculation details you might wish to see the wikipedia article for this statistic. partial correlation: Let's say you have a dependent variable Y and a collection of independent variables X1, X2, X3. You might for some reason be interested in the partial correlation of Y and X3. Then you would calculate the linear regression of Y on just X1 and X2. Knowing the coefficients of this linear model you would calculate the so-called residuals which would be the parts of Y unaccounted for by the model or, in other words, the differences between the Y's and the values given by b1X1 + b2X2 where b1 and b2 are the model coefficients from the regression. Now you would calculate the correlation between these residuals and the X3 values to obtain the partial correlation of X3 with Y given X1 and X2. Intuitively, we use the first regression and residual calculation to account for the explanatory power of X1 and X2. Having done that we calculate the correlation coefficient to learn whether any more explanatory power is left for X3 to 'mop up'.

What are the Jones and modified Jones model of aggregate accruals in earnings management?

The original Jones model of non-discretionary accruals was developed by J. Jones in a 1991 paper in which she asserted that firms under the scope for import relief would engage in income-reducing earnings management. It is a cross-sectional regression model: Non-discretionary accruals = OLScoeff(1)(1/Assets) + OLScoeff(2)(chg in Rev) + OLScoeff(3)(gross PPE) + error of estimates This original model has been refined many times to include the modified-Jones model which tweaks the second factor changing it from OLScoeff(2)(chg in Rev - chg in Rcvbls) Both are among the several regression tests for earnings management but the limitation of all regression tests of EM is that (1) the power of the tests are generally low (partially explain variation if and when detected), and (2) they are all ex post measures (lagging). Additional models include the industry model and the Healy model.
