Can anyone help as it's a long time since I studied this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a straight line - which I have the equation for and a plotted curve with multiple points.

I want to figure out the point where the curve would touch the line shold it be moved toward the line.

I've tried using excel to get the equation of the line for the curve but it won't seem to select all the points and is not giving me a good equation.

Any advice apprecaited!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
