An Experiment of Accuracy: Guessed Distances vs. True Distances Of Visible Landmarks Meredith Coulter 24 October 2007 Abstract: Our Stat 201 lab conducted an experiment to relate guessed distances of twelve visible landmarks to the actual distances which ranged between 8.5 and 273 feet. By comparing my guesses to the actual distance on a graph, I was able to look at a quadratic and linear line of best fit to decipher how accurate I was. Since my relation fit better on the linear regression line, I was able to determine that overall I was a fairly good guesser.

Materials and Methods: The purpose of this experiment was to find the relation between guessed distances and true distances of twelve visible landmarks. All graphs and computer work were completed using MINITAB version 14 on a personal computer. Thirteen locations were chosen in advance by the instructor. Twelve of these were posted on the worksheet and one was a “mystery location”. The distances ranged from short, medium, to long in order to assess that guessing abilities of each individual on a
