 Question 16 of 17 5.88 Points

A fashion student was interested in factors that predicted the salaries of catwalk models. She collected data from 231 models. For each model she asked them their salary per day on days when they were working (salary), their age (age), how many years they had worked as a model (years), and then got a panel of experts from modeling agencies to rate the attractiveness of each model as a percentage with 100% being perfectly attractive (beauty). The most appropriate statistical analysis would be:

 A.T-test B.ANOVA C.Multiple-regression D.chi square Question 17 of 17 5.88 Points
