It looks like this: ---------------------------------------------------------------- Model Unstd. Coeff. Std. Coeff. t Sig. B Std. Error Beta ----------------------------------------------------------------- 1(Constant) 4.195 .070 58.971 .000 A -.779 .042 -.319 -18.278 .000 B -.028 .046 -.010 -.618 .534 C -1.635 .064 -.442 -25.354 .000 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Now, I have one question. In regression theory, the linear regression equation (for three IVs) is defined as: Y = a + b1*X1 + b2*X2 + b3*X3 + e where a is a constant (distance on the Y axis) and b1, b2, b3 the paramters and e the error variance (which is fixed but random). Given the fact that I have only two paramters being significant, is this the correct equation? Y = 4.195 - 0.319 * A - 0.442 * C + e What would be e in this case? I have standard erros for each parameter...
