Through the points defining the dashed line the regression polynomial of degree 'degree' is computed and displayed. The points can be scaled by adjusting the slider 'scale'. The degree of the regression polynomial can be changed by using the slider 'degree'.

### The underlying JavaScript code

var data = "406.60 428.50 429.30 426.30 434.70 415.90 ... many points ... 521.80 524.40 526.80";
data = data.split(' ');
var datax = [];
for (i = 0; i < data.length; i++)  {
data[i] = (parseFloat(data[i])-450.0);
datax[i] = i;
}

var brd = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('jxgbox', {boundingbox:[-2, 100, data.length+2, -70], grid: false, axis:true});
brd.suspendUpdate();
var s = brd.create('slider',[[10,70],[80,70],[0,1,1]],{name:'scale'});
var deg = brd.create('slider',[[10,90],[80,90],[1,1,10]],{name:'degree',snapWidth:1});
curve.updateDataArray = function() {
var i, len = data.length;
this.dataX = datax.slice(0,len);
for (i=0; i<len; i++) {
this.dataY[i] = s.Value()*data[i];
}
}
curve.update(); // Needed for correct glider position

var regressionPolynomial = JXG.Math.Numerics.regressionPolynomial(deg, datax, curve.dataY);
var reg = brd.create('functiongraph',[regressionPolynomial],{strokeColor:'blue', strokeWidth:4});
brd.create('glider',[100,30,reg],{strokeColor:'black'});

t = brd.create('text',[20,40,
function(){ return "r(x) = " + regressionPolynomial.getTerm();}
],
{strokeColor:'black',fontSize:18});
brd.unsuspendUpdate();
