And because B may bias the weights for A and C, you need to run the regression again without B. The coefficients for Aand C will likely change. Then use the unstandardized coefficients for the regression equation. Paul R.

Given the fact that now I only have two paramters left (=being significant), is this the correct equation (keeping in mind the table below)? Y = 4.195 - 0.319 * A - 0.442 * C + e What would be e in this case? I have standard erros for each parameter...
