Making conclusions about slope


Leonard took a random sample of his recent text messages and found a positive linear relationship between how many minutes he took to reply and how many minutes the other person took to reply. Here is computer output from a least-squares regression analysis on his sample:
Regression: Their time vs. Leonard's time
PredictorCoefSE CoefTP
Leonard's time0.3470.2381.4610.168
Leonard wants to test H0β=0 vs. Haβ0. Assume that all conditions for inference have been met.
At the α=0.05 level of significance, is there sufficient evidence to conclude a linear relationship between these variables in Leonard's text messages? Why?
