I interpret your question as asking how to go from

{x1, y1},
{x2, y2},


{x1, y1/10},
{x2, y2/10},

If I have this correct, then one of the following will do

{First@#,Last@#/10}&/@ data



where data is a variable holding your data

This error message is indicating you have not used the correct
syntax for NonlinearRegress. But since you haven't posted what
you tried, I've no way to guess what you've done wrong and how
to fix it.
