Hello,
I want to fit quadratic equation curves to pumps' characteristics, but I dont want to use linear equation solver, and I want to use only my 32SII. And I dont want to store the points' coordinates.

############################################Let y=A*x^2+B*x+C, the derivative is:
y'=2*A*x+B == m*x+b, so A=m/2, and B=b.And if we minimize the sum of calculated and given y's
differece's square, we give C=AVER(y)A*AVER(x^2)B*AVER(x).
AVER() is average function.Here is the 32SII version:

RTNLBL S: CK=BE1E 15.0
LBL I: CK=D9ED 42.0
LBL C: CK=C868 30.0Variables:
A, B, C: Coefficients
X, Y: New point coordinates
U, V: Old point coordinates
I: SumX
J: SumY
K: SumX^2
N: Number of datapoints
And statistic registersUsage:
1., Sort the datapoints in increasing order of X
2., Start program with XEQ S
3., Enter the datapoints (No correction available!)
4., If you entered the last data, and you see N=... screen
start the coefficientcalculator routine: XEQ C=====================================================
