User defined fit in apps Stats 2Var
Are you able to use the User defined it in Stats 2 Var. the predefined fit work very well but not the user defined fit
Thanks

RE: User defined fit in apps Stats 2Var
The user fit basically allows you to draw a fit line onto the graph. It won't however carry through and calculate all the numerical values in the NUM>STATS calculations using the entered fit by design.
There is an issue currently that it doesn't flag your fit as being "calculated" if you start with a user fit first however. Just do one of the built in ones, then modify the formula *after* another fit has been calculated and it will work fine. I suspect you are entering a user fit *first*, and then it won't recognize there a valid fit to draw. If this is the case, just do one of the builtins and *then* edit the formula, and it will work properly for you.

RE: User defined fit in apps Stats 2Var
i have just try your solution but it does not work. I have choosen the quadratic fit A*X^2+B*X+C, the plot is OK. Then i edit the fit field by A*X^2 and i does not work !!

Store a value of 2 into A and you will see your graph easier. The user fit does not allow you to enter any number of arbitrary variables and solve for all the variables. It is much simpler and really is just a way for the user to either modify the existing fit, or experiment with creating their own "fit" line.

Thanks. I have just understood that is not a real fit but only for verifying a proper expression

RE: User defined fit in apps Stats 2Var
Can be adjusted with a polynomial of 5th grade or higher?

RE: User defined fit in apps Stats 2Var
The polynomial fit it actually an Nth fit internally, so yes I suspect this will be allowed at some point.
