Graphing calculator.

As an example, use the following data to obtain a polynomial fitting with p =
2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Because we will be using the same x-y data for fitting polynomials of different
orders, it is advisable to save the lists of data values x and y into variables xx
and yy, respectively. This way, we will not have to type them all over again
in each application of the program POLY. Thus, proceed as follows:
{ 2.3 3.2 4.5 1.65 9.32 1.18 6.24 3.45 9.89 1.22 } ` 'xx' K
{179.72 562.30 1969.11 65.87 31220.89 32.81 6731.48 737.41
39248.46 33.45} ` 'yy' K
To fit the data to polynomials use the following:
@@xx@@ @@yy@@ 2 @POLY, Result: [4527.73 -3958.52 742.23]
y = 4527.73-39.58x+742.23x
i.e.,
@@xx@@ @@yy@@ 3 @POLY, Result: [ –998.05 1303.21 -505.27 79.23]
y = -998.05+1303.21x-505.27x
i.e.,
@@xx@@ @@yy@@ 4 @POLY, Result: [20.92 –2.61 –1.52 6.05 3.51 ]
y = 20.92-2.61x-1.52x
i.e.,
@@xx@@ @@yy@@ 5 @POLY, Result: [19.08 0.18 –2.94 6.36 3.48 0.00 ]
y = 19.08+0.18x-2.94x
i.e.,
