We are trying to predict the price (P) of a clock given the age (A) of the clock and the number of bidders (B). In addition, we have been asked to give a predicted price for a 175 year clock when there are 12 bidders, and a 90% confidence interval for this prediction. Variable Mean Std.Dev.

We are trying to predict the price (P) of a clock given the age (A) of the clock and the number of bidders (B). In addition, we have been asked to give a predicted price for a 175 year clock when there are 12 bidders, and a 90% confidence interval for this prediction. Data : The data has been entered into the computer and printed out (p.___). The data has been checked for accuracy and has been verified to be the same as the data provided to us. Price : (in $), the dependent variable, has an average of _______, standard deviation of _______, ranges from a minimum value of ________ to a maximum of ________. The shape of the distribution appears ____________________________ (p_____) Age : an independent variable, has an average of _______, standard deviation of _______, ranges from a minimum value of _________ to a maximum of ___________. The shape of the distribution appears _______________________________ (p._____) Number of bidders : an independent variable, has an average of ______, standard deviation of _______, ranges from a minimum value of _______ to a maximum of _________. The shape of the distribution appears _________________ ______________.
