The exponential regression option finds the equation of the form y = ae

The values of y must be greater than zero. (This is because the method for determining the values of a and b in the regression equation is a least-squares fit on the values for x and ln y.)

The data shown here are the points {(2,11.4), (3,17), (5,27.3), (7,36.1), (11,47.7), (13,49.9)}.

Press for regressions, then to select exponential.

Therefore, the best-fit exponential equation for this data is approximately y = 11.78 e

The correlation coefficient, r, is about 0.93 and the coefficient of determination, r
