    Modeling a function for a set of data help

    Hi,

    I need to know how you can make a function fit a set of data without changing the function itself completely. I have made a function to model a set of data (table 1) but I want it to fit the 2nd set of data (table 2) by only "modifying it". any ideas?

    I have no idea what you are asking. What do you mean by "modifying" a function but not "changing it completely"? Whether or not a function can be "modified" to fit a net set of data depends on how close the new set of data is to the old one.
