1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
For the given set of data, find the least-square curve:
A) f(x)=Ce^Ax, by using the change of variable X=x, Y=ln(y), and C=e^B to linearize the data points.
B) f(x) = 1/(Ax+B), by using the change of variable X=x and Y = 1/y to linearize the data points.
x : [ -1 0 1 2 3]
y : [ 6.62 3.94 2.17 1.35 0.89]
I need the matlab code on how to do these 2 problems im confused and which curve gives a better fit. ??
2. Relevant equations
This is the only code i know but idk how to do it with the question they are asking i need to pertain it to that
function C = poly(X,Y,M)
3. The attempt at a solution
These are the coefficients:
I am confused with what the question is asking i know im suppose to have a ans for part A and B

Think about what a change of variable is, then figure out how to apply that to the data.
Aka, when you make a substitution for y=ln(y), that just means you take your y list, and just take the ln of that. That now because the new measurement for what used to be the y-axis.
Does that make sense?
