Summary:

This function calculates the adjustment of the entered data as an exponential regression curve (y=b*m^x).

Syntax:

LOGEST(DataY; DataX; FunctionType; Stats)

Returns:

Arguments:

DataY represents the Y Data array.

DataX (optional) represents the X Data array.

FunctionType (optional). If Function_Type = 0, functions in the form y = m^x will be calculated. Otherwise, y = b*m^x functions will be calculated.

Stats (optional). If Stats=0, only the regression coefficient is calculated.

In the LibreOffice Calc functions, parameters marked as "optional" can be left out only when no parameter follows. For example, in a function with four parameters, where the last two parameters are marked as "optional", you can leave out parameter 4 or parameters 3 and 4, but you cannot leave out parameter 3 alone.
