I created a fit curve and noticed the fit equation in the statistics report shows pow(X,n). What does that mean? Pow is the power function. Pow(X,n) means the variable X raised to the nth power. This is more commonly written as Xn. As an example, Pow(X,2) would be X squared, or X2. Updated July 7, 2016 Have more questions? Submit a request 0 Comments Please sign in to leave a comment.
