This should be easy if you know what to do. I just don't.

N(t) = γA(t)

N(t) is a known number (of peatlands) at time t, A(t) is a known area (deglaciated) at time t. γ is an unknown number (of peatlands that can form per unit of deglaciated area). How do I decide what is the one best fit value for γ for a range of N's and A's? This needs some kind of computer programme to calculate it?
