Actually, Excel has some nice functionality for doing this as well, although it isn't obvious that you first have to make a chart out of your data to do it :P Using Excel, I got the following polynomial equation for the MU para saving throw: 6e-8x^6 + 1e-5x^5 - 0.0011x^4 + 0.0321x^3 - 0.3929x^2 + 0.5694x + 69.455 Which was actually a really good fit... ;) --- eglamkowski@angelfire.com http://www.angelfire.com/nj/eglamkowski/null.html <- Null webring http://www.angelfire.com/nj/eglamkowski/eia.html <- EiA webring On Tue, 25 Aug 1998 13:07:53 Edward J Glamkowski wrote: >So, I found this graphing program that will generate >best fit formulas.
