# Simple x-y curve fitting from data set.

I'm struggling to find a simple example of simple curve fitting in MATLAB.
I just want to do a best-fit curve for the following data:
x = [1 1.5 2 2.5 3 10e10]
y = [19.74 14.26 12.34 11.45 10.97 9.87];
Please could someone show me how to do it?

do you really have an x vector where the final value jumps from 3 to 10^10?

Well it's supposed to be infinity but yes.

If you type
doc polyfit
in the MATLAB command window, you will see a simple example (and of course the syntax of the command).
EDIT:
I didn't really pay attention to the, uh, unusual shape of your data. polyfit() does simple polynomial fitting, so it's not right for you.
There's not really going to be a fit for a point "at infinity". You should probably add some detail about what you are trying to really accomplish here.

By definition that line is the best fit , as it goes through every point? If you wan't more restrictions you need to decide on what form your fit must have, even if you don't know the "true" underlying function.

Tom, that example starts off with erf() simply to create the sample of data which will be fit later.
As Jurgen says, you need to decide what form you want.
