```Please explain this to me:

If I do the following:

Fit[{{2942, 3650782}, {2955, 2255796}, {3204, 730421}, {4105,
1740135}, {7815,
6329111}, {13097, 7116844}}, {1, x, x^2, x^3}, x]

Results are:
\!\(1.7044496230729986`*^7 - 8507.38287339198`\ x +
1.3901134594316935`\ x\^2 - 0.00006096360495406324`\ x\^3\)

Then I plot the results as follows:

\!\(Plot[1.7044496230729986`*^7 - 8507.38287339198`\ x +
1.3901134594316935`\ x\^2 - 0.00006096360495406324`\ x\^3, {x,
2942,
13097}]\)

I get a nice "sin" looking plot.  (This is what I want.)

However if I try to combine the two statements into one.  Like this:

Plot[(Fit[{{2942, 3650782}, {2955, 2255796}, {3204, 730421}, {4105,
1740135}, {7815, 6329111}, {13097, 7116844}}, {1, x, x^2,
x^3},
x]), {x, 2942, 13097}]

I get a linear chart.

What is the difference?  And how do I get my nice "sin" looking plot
back?

As you can see, I an not really sure what is being plotted by the
first set of commands, but I think it is a log plot.

Thanks for you help.
