Statistical Data Project What the heck is a good set of statistics for this project? That was the question I had to determine first. I like sports, so I figured I would stick with something that would interest me. After thinking of a good team to start with, I chose which set of stats I would use from one of their seasons.

To find my extrapolation point I want to predict a score to a future game such as a seventeenth game. Under my (x,y) table on my calculator I find that the seventeenth game has a predicted score of 36. For interpolation I will use a point already...
