I never even try to guess the names, but just -matrix list e(b)- to
see what they are. And then you can incorporate them into the syntax
of -test- as Michael explained.

. qui sureg (price length weight) (mpg length weight)

. mat li e(b)

         price:      price:      price:        mpg:        mpg:        mpg:
        length      weight       _cons      length      weight       _cons
y1  -97.960312   4.6990649   10386.541  -.07959347  -.00385148   47.884873
