The Cadet is a popular model of sport utility vehicle, known for its relatively high resale value. The bivariate data given below were taken from a sample of sixteen Cadets, each bought "new" two years ago and each sold "used" within the past month. For each Cadet in the sample, we have listed both the mileage, x (in thousands of miles), that the Cadet had on its odometer at the time it was sold used, and the price, y (in thousands of dollars), at which the Cadet was sold used.
