(a) Suppose you were going to predict scores on the 100m running event. Which of the other nine events do you think would be the best indicators of the 100m results?
(b) Run a Stepwise regression (from the Fit Model Platform) with 100m as the Y and the other nine events as X. Use the default value of 0.25 probability to enter and the Forward method. Which events are included in the resulting model?
