Data analysis

  1. Jun 29, 2005 #1
    i've collected some datat to get a formula to calculate this data in general. but now the problem is that i don't know how to find that formula.

    i think the formula is something like [tex]{(AX+B)*((C(Y+D))^E)}/F=Z[/tex]
    but how do i calculate the A,B,C,D and E???

    if someone would have my xls with the data, just pm or mail me

    Since you have 5 "unknowns", A, B, C, D, E, you will need 5 data points, giving 5 equations. It should be possible to solve those 5 equations for the values but the best way will depend on the data.
