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

I'm working on some coursework for which I have been modelling a curve to a set of points, and for the final section I am wanting to calculate how close each point is to the curve as a method of comparison between the curves I have calculated. Some of the curves are quadratic, and others are the Cartesian form of some Polar equations. If anyone could offer any help or advice, it would be much appreciated :)
