If you're given ANY set of points, how do you find n?
In method of least squares, the formulas are:
m(sum(xi^2)) + b(sum(xi)) = sum(xi * yi)
m(sum(xi)) + nb = sum(yi)
For example, how would you find n to do the method of least squares, if you're given these set of points?
If you're given:
is n delta x? or the number of x terms? etc. how do you find n?
