How to show level of accuracy from original data FROM Re: Coefficients from Fit as a list?


Hi Bob,

When using FindFit to give the best linear approximation to data set
points. Could you show me a simple example of code / function to show
level of accuracy / error deviation from original data set.

Many thanks

Lea Rebanks...

points={{0,-1},{1,2},{3,7},{4,6},{7,9},{11,14}};

Fit[points,{1,x,x^2},x]

-0.0592841*x^2 + 1.89613*x - 0.113262

Reverse@Most@Cases[%,_?NumericQ,Infinity]

{-0.0592841,1.89613,-0.113262}

param={a,b,c};

param/.FindFit[points,a*x^2+b*x+c,param,x]

{-0.0592841,1.89613,-0.113262}

Needs["Statistics`NonlinearFit`"];

param/.(BestFitParameters/.
      NonlinearRegress[points,
         a*x^2+b*x+c, x, param])

{-0.0592841,1.89613,-0.113262}
