Mathematica provides tools you can use so that *you* can
determine the desired relationship. And these tools are
certainly not limited to just two predictor variables.

>What would be the code for doing so?

You need to provide a lot more information before anyone could
intelligently answer this. You can start by looking at functions
such as FindFit, LinearModelFit and NonlnearModelFit. Or
depending on what you are trying to do, you might want to look
at GeneralizedLinearModelFit, LogitModelFit or ProbitModelFit.

Look up these in the documentation center for more information.
