Just broke it up so I can read it easier. Right so

Since the outcome it either yes or no. 0 or 1. This implies that it comes from a Bernoulli random variable. This implies that the logistic regression is what you need to be looking at.

Before I can help you any further I need to know that. How do you if MRSA is present?
3. use SPSS

I should know if MRSA is present when I coat the plates in different concentrations of methicillin . If there is a bacteria grow colonys on the plate MRSA is present.
