Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for taking the time to read the post.

I have a question related to curve fitting and polynomials that i was hoping someone might be able to help me with.

I have a set of x and y data points, all on a graph. I have then calculated the 4th order least squares polynomial for those points, which gives me an equation for that fit.

I would now like to go one step further and calculate what the least squares polynomial will be if i force the fit line through the last data point? Does anyone have a reference or any advice on how to do this?

Many thanks for your help in advance,

Kay
