Chris P sent this one along. Rarely has a simple linear equation been rendered so hard to understand. Have some fun while scouting the cougars!  The write up is here.

So a 50 year old can date a 30 year old, but a 30 year old can't date a 50 year old. Or maybe the 50 year old will be considered socially acceptable but the 30 year old wont. It's all a bit complex.

Ken -

Half your age plus 7 is the lower limit. Twice your age minus 14 must be the upper limit.

A 50-year-old can date as young as 32 years old. A 30-year-old can date as old as 46 years old.

Ahh, the terrible burden of being 14 years old: one's choices there are quite constrained. But then, who else would want to go near one?

But you have to account for the fact that there are fewer singles available as you get older:

Is this concept ok for a line chart in general?

I have a set of data which has a relatively predictable low, high, average. Could I use a line chart for something like that?
