Practical 2 : the data


In the presentation of the data is it necesseray to include boxplot and scatter plots of all the observations, or should we just include plots for the weight and Horsepower ?

Thanks iin advance

Since the focus of this practical is on model selection and not on exploratory data analysis, it is enough that you'll give a brief description of the data and the table of variables in Section 2 of the report. In particular, we do not require boxplots or scatterplots in that section. However, you might find scatterplots useful later when you explain why certain variables are removed from the model by hand.
