Is this a classification or regression problem? I have just started solving the practice problems…



Regression means to predict the output value using training data. Classification means to group the output into a class.
Hence, this is a regression problem.


No, since we are predicting the category range, it is considered as classification problem. Even if the final output is a number, the underlying part is a categorical variable, i.e. it belongs to a particular category.
