Help with uncorrelated predictor variables for hypothesis test.

Hi,
I am quite new to r and I have encountered a question that I don't understand what I am supposed to do. the question is as follows, Test the hypothesis H0: 3 = 0, assuming all predictor variables in the current model are uncorrelated. Any help in how I should be starting this would be much appreciated.

Hi. Do you know what sort of hypothesis test to run? Once you do that, you should be able to find lots of information on how to run it using R.

Hello williaml, this is from the multiple regression model. We should be using tvalues/pvalues. Any idea how we can test the hypothesis H0: B3=0 assuming all predictor variables in the model are uncorrelated.

Do you know what test you want to run? You should make a decision based on what sort of data you have. I don't know anything about your dataset or your hypothesis. If you are having trouble choosing, perhaps you should do more reading.

There are heaps of resources online. For example:
