DATA HANDLING

MATHS COURSEWORK

MR UDDIN

Introduction

In this investigation I would looking at what factors affect the price of a second hand car. The things that I think that affect the price of a second hand car are:

Mileage       (The car might be warn out by all the journeys that It went

through)

Engine Size (How fast a car travels and the size of the engine)

I have decided to follow the following line of enquiry, the difference between the mileage and the price and how it affects it.

My Hypothesis is

The higher the mileage the higher the price drops

I would look at the price drop by using the following

%drop in price = Price when new- 2nd hand price

Price when new

1. First I am going to randomly select 30 cars from the data sheet

I am now going to explain how I had worked out % price drop in price

The formula is

%Price Drop = Price When New – 2nd Hand Price x 100

Price When New

Now I am going to choose 1 car from the table and show how I done it

The formula is

% Price Drop in = Price When New- 2nd Hand Price x 100

Price When New

I have selected a car from the table to show how I have worked out the % price drop

% Price Drop in = 8601 - 3995 x 100

8601

=0.53x100

=53

Now I am going to present my data using a scatter graph. The scatter graph would show if the factors would have a correct data or not.

Looking at my graph I can see it is a positive correlation. This correlation is a week correlation, it is scatter around.
