    • regression equation
      Quartic Regression
      y= 0.33x4 + 6.02x3 -145.33x2 + 919.69x + 147.62
    • Quartic Regression Graph
    • Tangent Line equation
      Y= 617.88x - 2292.34
    • Regression model and tangent line graph
    • Costs of going to school for the 2009-2010 year
      Regression model results: $3227.40
      Tangent Line model results: $3268.60
      Results yielded around the same range with only a difference of $41.20
      The actual tuition for the 2009-2010 year is $2,991 so the projections are actual pretty accurate, with only a difference about 300 dollars. The Regression model was more accurate and was a better prediction for the tuition costs.
