    categorical variables in regression analysis and interaction terms

    I am learning multiple regression with categorical variables and in a book I came across this problem. For yield of corn suppose there are two factors affecting, nitrogen level and depth of ploughing. Say there are three nitrogen categories(1,2,3) and two depth categories(1,2). There's...
