TextPrices: Text Prices


Prices and number of pages for a sample of college textbooks


A dataset with 30 observations on the following 2 variables.

Pages Number of pages in the textbook
Price Price of the textbook (in dollars)


Two undergraduate students at Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo took a random sample of 30 textbooks from the campus bookstore in the fall of 2006. They recorded the price and number of pages in each book, in order to investigate the question of whether number of pages can be used to predict price.
