George believes that returns of mutual funds are influenced by annual turnover rates and annual expense ratios. In order to substantiate his claim, he randomly selects eight mutual funds and collects data on each fund’s five-year annual return (Return), its annual holding turnover rate (Turnover), and its annual expense ratio (Expense). The entire data set, labeled Turnover_Expense, can be found on the text website.
