 Using the Graphing Calculator to input data from tables Reply to this Post Reply with Quote

I am currently learning about Quadratic Regression and the "best fits" theory. The problem is as follows: The table lists the total estimated numbers of AIDS cases by diagnosis from 1999 to 2003 in the USA. I have to plot the data, find the quadratic function that models the data, plot the function on the graph with the data and determine how well the graph fits the data. and use the data to predict the number of cases for the year 2006. I believe that I could do the problem on my own if I could figure out how to use the calculator. Please HELP!!! The data is below

Years: 1999: 41356 cases
2000: 41267 cases
2001: 40833 cases
2002: 41289 cases
2003:43171 cases

PLEASE HELP ME LIKE ASAP BECAUSE I AM REALLY BEHIND IN THIS ADVANCED FUNCTIONS AND MODELING CLASS THAT I AM TAKING ON LINE.

Sorry, but our calculators do not currently do statistical plotting.
