Vs. Age

Introduction/Hypothesis

Data Set

## which we actually collect data. The project sample is from

Matt Kennellys facebook, but only the ones that can drive.

## the response variable (y-axis) would be the miles they travel

in their car for a week. We chose these as the explanatory

## and response variable this way because their age influences

the miles they travel in a week. The older they get the more

## meaning any prediction has a 14.8% variation.

Prediction

## resulting in the variation being 14.8%. The validity would be

somewhat valid.

Lurking Variables

## scatterplot we can infer that the lurking variables are, (50,

3000) and (63, 25). These are not close to the other data

## points we received, making them a lurking variable.

Conclusion/Hypothesis

Our hypothesis was that if you are older than the age of

30, the more miles they will drive in a week. Our hypothesis

was, incorrect. The regression line, along with the data points

## showed us that people under 30 drive more miles in a week. If

the driver is 30 years old then the miles they drive in a week
