## ISL Exercise 9.7.1 (10pts)
## ISL Exercise 9.7.2 (10pts)
## Support vector machines (SVMs) on the `Carseats` data set (30pts)
Follow the machine learning workflow to train support vector classifier (same as SVM with linear kernel), SVM with polynomial kernel (tune the degree and regularization parameter $C$), and SVM with radial kernel (tune the scale parameter $\gamma$ and regularization parameter $C$) for classifying `Sales<=8` versus `Sales>8`. Use the same seed as in your HW4 for the initial test/train split and compare the final test AUC and accuracy to those methods you tried in HW4.
## Bonus (10pts)
Let
$$
f(X) = \beta_0 + \beta_1 X_1 + \cdots + \beta_p X_p = \beta_0 + \beta^T X.
$$
Then $f(X)=0$ defines a hyperplane in $\mathbb{R}^p$. Show that $f(x)$ is proportional to the signed distance of a point $x$ to the hyperplane $f(X) = 0$.
