# Use Linear Regressio or One-way ANOVA to analyze the data set and write a Memorandum.

Recently, our actual shipping cost have exceeded our expected cost. What items that we can control could be causing these cost overruns?
Analyze the attached data set to identify any anomalies that could be addressed. Prepare a business memo using the attached template. Make sure you clearly identify a problem/opportunity and clearly communicate your recommended solution to any issue you identify.
In this exercise, students provide a business decision recommendation using SAS and Excel. The student will create a summary report of their analysis and create an informative graphic. Finally, the students will prepare and submit a business memorandum that provides a recommendation based on their analysis of the data set that includes an analysis of different courses of action using weighted factors.
