HousePrices data set is a cross-sectional data set on house prices and other features, e.g., number of bedroom, of houses in Windsor, Ontario. The data were gathered during the summer of 1987.
Use the HousePrices data to perform the following tests using Linear Regression settings:
i. Construct a summary stat for all the variables in the HousePrices data. ( 5 points)
ii. What is the percentage of houses in the data with Driveway, Gas-Heat and Air-conditioning present? (Hint: find the mean after creating dummy variables with driveway, gasheat, and aircon variables respectively). (5 points)
iii. Construct a linear regression model to test whether number of bedrooms influence house prices. Provide a summary of the linear regression model using summary() function. (10 points)
iv. Construct a multiple linear regression model by including all variables as predictors of house prices (response variable) and observe the effect on the house prices. Provide a summary of the regression model using summary() function. (10 points)
