Hi everyone!

I have a basic time series dataset named "lynx", which is included in R. This dataset shows the number of catches of lynxes per year, over a period of 114 years.

Although this is a time series, my teacher asks me to use this dataset to create a regression model capable of predicting the number of catches that have taken place in a given year taking into account only the catches of the previous two or three years.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to proceed. I do not even know how to process the data to apply, for example, a basic linear regression model to them.

Someone can tell me how to proceed?

Thank you so much.
