Introduction

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.

Aim

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
