7. A multiple regression analysis produced the following tables:
Predictor  Coefficients  Standard Error  t Statistic  pvalue 
Intercept  616.6849  154.5534  3.990108  0.000947 
x1  3.33833  2.333548  1.43058  0.170675 
x2  1.780075  0.335605  5.30407  5.83E05 
Source  df  SS  MS  F  pvalue 
Regression  2  121783  60891.48  14.76117  0.000286 
Residual  15  61876.68  4125.112 


Total  17  183659.6 



These results indicate that ____________. (Points : 3)
none of the predictor variables are significant at the 5% level
each predictor variable is significant at the 5% level
x1 is the only predictor variable significant at the 5% level
x2 is the only predictor variable significant at the 5% level
the intercept is not significant at the 5% level
