Dear Michael (and Davis), Your answer is not what I want to know. My question is to find any command to plot the data I got from the field; such as a set of (x,y) data ( I actually have these data) and together withe the derived ones . I brought these data to plot on x-y plane, getting a graph showing some relation. Then, I wanted to find some linear relation, I would use least square method to solve having a simple function such as; y = ax + b, solving the a and b. So, I could plot a straight line using this function, or perhaps forecast some data of y which I know the value x. My problem is when I did a scatter plot by command "plot(x,y)", I got a graph. Whilst I plotted another graph using the above function the existing graph disappeared replaced be the latter function. Unfortunately, after searching a while to find the solution command, I can not find the command. I asked the question as to request some help not the example you shown. Any way, thanks for you effort. Tawee Mac OS10.7.3
