    [SOLVED] How do I make an equation out of a list of values?

    Hi guys, new to the forums. I've recently purchased a HP 50G for school use. I have a project, there's one part where I have a list of x and y value and I need to fit it into an equation (probably a cosine or sine equation). This calculator is so much different from the TI calculators we use in school, so I have no idea how to do it. I've checked the manual, and it didn't help at all. So can anyone tell me how to fit a list of values into an equation?

    Many Thanks.

    Personally, I hate HP calculators. I used them at work for years. They're temperamental and not very user-friendly. At least, they used to be. Maybe improvements have been made.

    My griping notwithstanding, try finding regressions on your calculator. Maybe you can find an online manual like TI has.

    LinReg, QuadReg, CubicReg, etc.
