Maximum and minimum lines of best fit

Recommended Posts

If my uncertainties on the x-axis how do I create my maximum and minimum lines of best fit needed for slope uncertainty?

I wish I knew how to explain it in words...

it's still from the tips of the error bars. ugh how do I explain it -_-

or could you PM me your graph, tell me how much the uncertainty is and I'll plot the extreme lines for you... I know how to do it but don't know how to explain it -.-

As long as I ended with my maximum line of best fit as the largest slope and my minimum line of best fit as the smallest slope (best fit is in between) am I on the right track?

That should be right if I understand you you correctly.

From there you just average the two to get the true line of best fit.
