Example Method of Least Squares The given example explains how to find the equation of a straight line or a least square line by using the method of least square, which is very useful in statistics as well as in mathematics. Least squares and linear equations minimize kAx bk2 solution of the least squares problem: any xˆ that satisﬁes kAxˆ bk kAx bk for all x rˆ = Axˆ b is the residual vector if rˆ = 0, then xˆ solves the linear equation Ax = b if rˆ , 0, then xˆ is a least squares approximate solution of the equation in most least squares applications, m > n and Ax = b has no solution A section on the general formulation for nonlinear least-squares tting is now available. �. We call it the least squares solution because, when you actually take the length, or when you're minimizing the length, you're minimizing the squares of the differences right there.
