Homework Help: How can I calculate an average curve

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    I have 5 curves on the same xOy, how can I calculate an average curve for all 5 ?

    calculating average points from 5 points does not seem to give correct result.

    I don't understand what you mean. Do you have 5 points or 5 curves. And what do you mean by "an average curve"- average in what sense?

    I am sorry it is 5 curves. In my second post, I thought I could pick many points on all of those curves then calculate the average but it didn't turn out correct as expected. Do you know how to draw an average curve ?
