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

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

:)
