Plotting a best fit curve over a histogram

  1. Oct 20, 2011 #1
    Im analyzing some data from a previous student im trying to plot a line of best fit over the histogram and hense find the value of the coefficiants

    the files had to be loaded as -ascii so this is the code i have typed so far

    x=load('filename.mat','-ascii'); mean(x); hist(x,300)

    this then produces the graph how do i add a best fit line to this. I have the curve fit toolbox but dont seem to be able to use this to give me a plausable best fit. I am using Matlab 2010

    any help would be appreciated
