  10. 10. Costs of going to school for the 2009-2010 year<br />Regression model results: $3227.40<br />Tangent Line model results: $3268.60<br />Results yielded around the same range with only a difference of $41.20<br />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.
