I couldn't get these lines from my book. I will reproduce it here.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Warning:In step 1, if you use computer to fit a polynomial to the data , it could lead to disaster. For example, consider fitting a sixth degree polynomial to the seven data points, or, an (n-1) degree polynomial to n points.

Could you please explain it to me?

Thanks a lot!
