# A gentle introduction of polyfit in MatLab

Polyfit is a function name in MatLab language. In MatLab, the polyfit() function finds all coefficients from a polynomial equation. The polynomial equation consists of the degree n of x and y coordinate points. The x, y coordinates should be the same size for the fitting process. Polyfit also means, 'polynomial curve fitting'.
What is polynomial?
A polynomial is the expression of some consecutive terms, where the terms involve only arithmetical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication). The form of the terms should be like this,
N.X^n
Where N is a number, X is the exponential variable and n is a positive integer. The n is also called as degree value of exponential variable X.
