Guided Project: Predicting Car Prices - Why does the solution use Univariate and Multivariate models?


I did this project and then looked at the solution, to find uni-variate and multi-variate models.

Why would the uni-variate approach be used when it is clear that a single factor alone is not responsible for the price calculation?

Is it for practice or should this be a normal approach I should take for the real life projects too?

Hi @mailradhakrishnasing,

The reasoning for this approach has been provided in screen 3 of this project:

Let’s start with some univariate k-nearest neighbors models. Starting with simple models before moving to more complex models helps us structure your code workflow and understand the features better.
