Hi, I'm learning statistic. Do you guys know how to calculate quadratic regression by hand, which is: give a data set (x,y), find a parabola f(x)=ax^2+bx+c that minimize the total square errors .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have known how to calculate linear regression.

Thanks in advanced.
