Issues like this are easier to address if you provide details of what you tried by posting the actual code you used. However, In[14]:= data = {{-0.08, 0.05}, {0.96, -3.19}, {1.93, -6.4}, {2.98, -10.32}, {3.97, -11.8}, {5.92, -13.98}, {7.88, -14.12}, {11.85, -15.34}, {15.79, -14.61}, {19.7, -15.43}, {23.67, -15.83}}; In[15]:= FindFit[data, a/(1 + b*Exp[(-c)*t]), {a, b, c}, t] Out[15]= {a -> -12.101999999839752, b -> 262.91715257267236, c -> 752.6850725748074} In[16]:= $Version Out[16]= "5.2 for Mac OS X (June 20, 2005)" So, clearly it is possible to fit the curve to your data with Mathematica. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
