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

I have a set of data that is number of counts - vs - angle. I need one angle for a calculation. I think need to find the best fit instead of an average. What would be the best way of doing this? Maybe perform a least sq calculation? The function is non-linear.

Thanks in advance,

Chloe
