    Re: Equation for this graph

    tell you what

    you write the data points as text as

    $\{x_1, y_1\}, \{x_2, y_2\}, $ etc.

    and I'll fit a curve for you.

    I'm not going to type all that in from the picture though.

    curve 1 is $-0.00544151 x^2+1.03165 x-27.6779$

    curve 2 is $-0.00541312 x^2+1.02809 x-2.94836$

    Re: Equation for this graph

    Are you not at all concerned with whether or not that answer is correct?

    When I put x= 32 into −0.00544151x^2+ 1.03165x−27.6779, I get -0.2372, not 0.

    I checked a plot of the quadratic against the points. It's not perfect but it's pretty damn close.

    Could it be improved by increasing the order of the model? Sure. Is it necessary? Almost certainly not.
