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

i have the equation F= x + kx^n

I am trying to determine the constants k and n? where i have the ranges for F and x

is what i am doing correct?

log F= logx + logk+ nlogx

log F= logx(1+n) + logk

ok i would then plot logF vs Log x. if i am correct logk = y intercept and from that k can be calculated. How would i use the gradient to find the value of n. can someone plz give me some assistance. much appreciated.
