Introduction

Data Handling Coursework:

Hypothesis:

The more the mileage of a car the lower the used price of the car. I will use different makes of cars and the choices I have picked are Mercedes, Ford and BMW; however I think that because of my knowledge I know that the Mercedes is a more expensive make of a car and therefore it should have a higher used price than the rest of the cars.

I will use a sample size of fifteen Mercedes, fifteen Fords and fifteen BMW.

This will be a fair sample because I will pick each one at random so that the test will be fair enough, and in contrast I pick

    It is only out by 2%. Again, like in hypothesis 1, the equation of the straight line is a basic general equation for the relationship between the age of the car and value of depreciation. My prediction for this hypothesis was correct because there is a general increase in the value of depreciation as the mileage of the car increases.
