Unformatted text preview: Section 3.3 24 Find the best straight-line fit to the following measurements, and sketch your solution: y = 2 at t =- 1 , y = 0 at t = 0 , y =- 3 at t = 1 , y =- 5 at t = 2 . Solution. Suppose the line is given by y = u + v · t. To determine u and v , we need to solve the system u + v · (- 1) = 2 u + v · = u + v · 1 =- 3 u + v · 2 =- 5 , that is, 1- 1 1 1 1 1 2 " u v # = 2- 3- 5 , which is obviously inconsistent. The best solution given by the least squares method is " ˆ u ˆ v # = ( A T A )- 1 A T b = "- 3 / 10- 12 / 5 # . 25 Suppose that instead of a straight line, we fit the data in Problem 24 by a parabola: y = C + Dt + Et 2 . In the inconsistent system Ax = b that comes from the four measurements, what are the coefficient matrix A , the unknown vector x , and the data vector b ? You need not compute ˆ x ....
