1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For the following data, find the least squares fit of the given form x=1,2,3,4,6 y=14,10,8,6,5 h(x)=ae^x+be^(-x) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So I tried to linearize the equation by taking the natural log of everything ln(h)=ln(ae^-x)+ln(be^ex) ln(h)=ln(a)+ln(b)+x-x that when I run into a problem, I eliminate the x's. My question is, is there another way to linearize the equation or should I continue though?
