CSC 113 Homework 5 Assigned: November 12, 2010 Due: November 19, 2010 Directions: Write ONE script file that solves all of the following problems. Only the answers should be output to the command window. 1) Plot the following data (using markers, i.e., don’t connect the points with a line): x=[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10] y=[0 3 6.3 10 14.5 19 23 25 26.5 27] Use the polyfit command to create a linear, quadratic, and trinomial fit (1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd order fits) of the data, and plot them as conventional curves on the same graph. Include a legend to differentiate between the three curve fits. 2) Solve the following system of equations for

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
