(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hi all.

Lets say i have some data points (x, y) (we will call these data 'D'). There is no uncertainty inx, and the uncertainty inyis 1.

I believe t hatxandyare connected as y = ax^{2}, and I want to find the probability ofahaving a certain value given the data D.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know how to find the probability ofyhaving some specific value given some data points forywith an uncertainty. But in this case,xandyare connected bya. I thought that perhaps the relative unvertainty inyis the same fora?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,

Niles.
