Graph:

Equation of Line of Best Fit:

Y= 4.2x + 43

Y= mx + c

Y=mx + 43

Gradient= Y/X = 37/8.9 = 4.2 (1.d.p)

Y= 4.2x + 43

E.g.:

Assume a car is 6 years old. How much is its current price if the car was bought new for £10,000?

%age loss = 4.2 x 6 +43

= 68%

money lost = 68% of 10,000

= £6,800

new value = 10,000 – 6,800

=£1,500

Graph:

Equation of Line of Best Fit:

Y= 0.5x + 45.5

Y=mx + c

Y=mx + 45.5

Gradient= Y/X = 34.5/76 = 0.5 (1.d.p)

Y= 0.5x + 45.5

E.g.:

Assume a car has done 40,000 miles. How much is its current price if the car was bought new for £8,000?

%age loss = 0.5 x 40 + 45.5

= 66%

Money lost = 66% of £8,000

= 5,280

New value = 8,000 – 5,280

= £2,720
