In my investigation I will be trying to find out the average loss of money from 1st hand, to 2nd hand as the age of the car go up.

What I will do to find this out is to firstly separate them into colour and the cars which have the same number I will be looking at. When I find the most popular car I will be looking at it more closely to see how the prices of the cars change.

I was given with a sheet of paper with lots of different pieces of data on such as car prices when new and second hand the mileage how old the car was what colour it was and also the make of the car.

These results show me that the blue car is the most popular colour of car. This kind of proves my hypothesis right because I said that there would be a lot of colours with loads of car with that colour and they would be the better-known colours.


Now I am going to be looking at the blue cars in more detail what I will be looking at is how the price of the car changes when a car gets older. So I will be looking at the price of the car when new then I will be comparing on to the price of the car second and I will find out how mush the car has gone down in price

The equation that you would use to find out how much you would loose when selling your car would be price of car when new – 2nd hand price or if your just wanted to find how much annual loss you make it would be loss / age of car

    To that, we leave the variable less for the brands. The graph will be the rate of depreciation against the age. Then I will plot a trend line that is linear and then I will find out the equation of that linear graph and then substitute it with the rate of depreciation, which is R.

  1. Statistic coursework-what has the most influence on the price of a second hand car?

    Ford- secondhand price Second hand price (GBP) Number of cars 0 to 2000 9 2001 to 4000 7 4001 to 6000 11 6001 to 8000 4 8001 to 10000 4 10001 to 12000 2 12001 to 14000 1 Total 38 From my bar chart, the range of Ford secondhand price is much smaller compared to Mercedes.

  2. Used car prices.

    I predict that an older car will have a higher mileage. I think that this is because an older car would have been driven more than a new car and therefore it would be a higher mileage. I also predict that there will be only a few/ hardly any cars when the mileage is extremely high (i.e.: 90000-150000).

  1. Handling data Used car prices

    From the sample I have worked out the average value of depreciation for the cars in the sample. This will then allow me to plot the information onto a scatter diagram. The graph shown above shows a very good upwards trend.

    It shows the mileage, the age, the used car price and the engine size. This scatter diagram shows the affect on used car price as the age increases. The trend line I added shows a slope going downwards from left to right.

  1. Used second hand cars

    The data I will be using is secondary data as it is found in published statistics. For example; computerised data bases, the internet and so on. The advantage of collecting secondary data is there is a large quantity of data provided and is fairly easy to find.

  2. Objective; to investigate the relationship between used car price and age of car.

    I also did this because if I just picked out cars randomly like every 3rd car in the list, it wouldn't prove to be a fair test, as if I did, I may have neglected cars of certain ages out, and/or got too many cars of the same age group.
