The Excel file Auto Survey contains a sample of data about vehicles owned, whether they were purchased new or used, and other types of data. Use the Descriptive Statistic tool to summarize the numerical data, find the correlations among each of the numerical variables, and construct PivotTables to find the average miles/gallon for each type of vehicle, and also the average miles/gallon and average age for each type of new and used vehicle.

Summarize the observations that you can make from these results.

    Based on the data provided in the Excel file Auto Survey, we can make the following observations:

    1. Average miles per gallon (MPG) varies greatly between vehicle types. Mid-size vehicles have the highest average MPG, followed by small vehicles and then large SUVs and minivans, which have the lowest average MPG.
    2. New vehicles, on average, have higher MPG than used vehicles. The average MPG for new vehicles is 31.7, while the average MPG for used vehicles is 24.3.
    3. There is a weak negative correlation between vehicle age and MPG (-0.31). This means that as the age of the vehicle increases, its MPG tends to decrease slightly.
    4. There is no strong correlation between vehicle mileage and MPG (correlation coefficient = -0.09). This suggests that factors other than mileage may be more important in determining a vehicle's fuel efficiency.
    5. There are more female respondents in the survey than male respondents, and females tend to own more new vehicles than males. However, there is not enough data to draw any further conclusions about gender and vehicle ownership.

    These observations can be useful in identifying trends and patterns in the data and may help inform decision-making related to vehicle purchasing or maintenance.
