Use the regression facilities on your calculator to fit a sine curve to these data. Choose the one option which provides the best fit model (with coefficient rounded to 2 significant figures).
A) t=3.0sin(0.49d1.6)+6.0
B) d=3.0+6.0sin(0.49t1.6)
C) t=2.9sin(0.48d1.5)+6.0
D) d=3.0sin(0.49t1.6)+6.0
E) d=2.99sin(0.49t1.60)+6.04
F) d=6.03.0sin(0.49t+1.6)
Can anyone help me please. I may be d?

Note that you want d(t) to be of the form:
d(t) = A + B sin(r t + s)
Now, as you can see, all the options that express d like this have r = 0.49. This makes it easy to find the best fit, because you can now transform this problem into a linear regression problem as follows. You write:
d(t) = A + B sin(r t + s) =
A + B [cos(s) sin(r t) cos(s) + sin(s)cos(rt)(rt)] =
A + B cos(s) sin(rt) + B sin(s) cos(rt)
So, this problem is of the form:
d(t) = A_1 + A_2 f_2(t) +
A_3f_3(t)
with
f_2(t) = sin(rt)
f_3(t) = cos(rt)
So this is a standard linear regression problem as d is a linear function of f_2 and f_3.
You just need to proceed in the same way as you would proceed in case of a regression problem like:
Y = A + B X1 + C X2
for given data for Y, X1, and X2.

math  Count Iblis, Saturday, May 12, 2007 at 11:49am
Hi Grant,
Do you have a calculator in which you can enter data to do linear regression in multiple variables?
If so, then you need to do the following. Compile a table with the values of X1 = sin(0.49 t) and
X2 = cos(0.49 t).
Then you must enter the data for Y = d, X1 and X2 in your calculator and out will come the regression parameters corresponding to a fit of the form:
Y = A + B X1 + C X2
From B and C you then calculate the amplitude and the phase of the sin...
