Question: Martha LaChance owner of Posies Unlimited operates a local chain

Martha LaChance, owner of Posies Unlimited, operates a local chain of floral shops. Each shop has its own delivery van. Instead of charging a flat delivery fee, LaChance wants to set the delivery fee based on the distance driven to deliver the flowers. LaChance wants to separate the fixed and variable portions of her van operating costs so that she has a better idea how delivery distance affects these costs. She has the following data from the past seven months:

1. Prepare a scatter plot of Posies Unlimited’s volume (miles driven) and van operating costs.
2. Do the data appear to contain any outliers? Explain.
3. How strong of a relationship is there between miles driven and van operatingexpenses?
