- What does E mean in 9.0122222900391E-5? 3 answers
I'm a programmer who had always been lacking some mathematical skills, yes it's a shame, I know.
I'm making this little software for a biologist friend, and at some point I need to pull out a graph out of a formulas he gave me.
Problem is, I don't understand it, and before asking him if there are no mistake in it (and possibly look like a fool), i thought I'd ask the community :)
So here is the formula :
y = -2E-07x6 + 1E-05x5 - 0.0002x4 + 0.0015x3 - 0.0052x2 + 0.0063x - 0.0007
