Dear all,I am currently running a simple regression, and try to explain thecoefficients. The model and estimation results are the following.y=5.41+1.24*x1+.28*x2, R2=0.7, N=20 (0.58) (3.4) (2.56) The t-stats are in parentheses.I'd like to know how much (in terms of percentage) of the change iny is accounted for by change in x1, and how much change in y by change in x2.

Another question is: can I use [sum(residual^2)]/[sum((y-ybar)^2)],where ybar is the mean value of the dependent variable, to saysomething about percentage of residual, like smaller percentage ofresiduals implies that x1 and x2 are good explanatory factors for y?

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Best, Kayla
