Homework Help: Least Squares Statistics

  1. Oct 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am not sure whether the answer should be b or d. It says the average of the function and the vertical scale need to be determined. In other words I won't have to determine a_0 (the vertical shift) right? Because it did not mention that?

    Also what is the average of the function? Why do you need the average?
