Here is my data set so far:

4.638013x^0.076682586

4.834884x^0.034875062

4.0432342x^0.13476002

3.8535004x^0.12178477

How do I do this, and what is the average function for this particular set?

Thank you for your time.

It depends on what you mean by 'average'.

I'm looking at it from a graph standpoint, where I want to find one curve that best represents them all.

Is it really that simple? I guess I had delusions of complexity.

Anyways thanks for your help.

The un-simple task you have not done is to figure out precisely what you are trying to accomplish. What do you intend to use this "average" function for?Is it really that simple?

I'm attempting to approximate the faulty motion reporting of a mouse sensor in terms of a power curve which it doesn't really follow but is available to mimic in settings available with many interfaces that support acceleration. The data I get is a bit noisy, so I take a sample, approximate its curve with a graphing program, take another sample, approximate that one, and so on. Over many iterations the 'average' function between them all should be a reasonable approximation.The un-simple task you have not done is to figure out precisely what you are trying to accomplish. What do you intend to use this "average" function for?

There's a definite limit on the precision as long as only a simple power curve is available. It's more precisely described as a higher order polynomial. At a later date I may get into its exact description in these terms but for now a simple power curve takes priority.
