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 image00.png

                            Price when new

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

image01.png

                                          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

image01.png

                                                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

image02.png

                                          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.

    of Ford cars, so that I can later, compare this with the price and mileage of Mercedes on a line graph.

  2. Factors affecting price of Used Car

    I can conclude that as the mileage increases, its second hand price decreases. I also realised that when the car is young, i.e. one or two years old, its price drops faster than when it's old. Another thing I noted is that the price will keep on dropping but it will never reach a negative value.

  1. Maths coursework - car prices

    Graph 1 also shows the equation of the line of best fit to be: Y = -1174.5x + 14088. From this equation we can predict the price of the car when knowing it's age and also predict the age of the car when knowing it's price, by rearranging the equation to make x the subject.

  2. Data Handling Coursework

    Then I will write down my observations and any trends that I can see. I will use that same method for my age and make investigations. Some limitations that I might face are that I would not know weather the make of the car was to blame for the amount of percentage depreciation.

  2. Mathematics course work

    Now I will show a line graph to show the trends of the 5 cars. By looking at the line graph I can say that it has a weak negative correlation because when the age is low (2) the price is high (�10995) and when the age is high (11)
