Capter 1: ProjectExploration: Diagonals of a Regular Polygon

Chapter one focuses on modeling which is a mathematical structure that approximates phenomena for predicting the behavior of something. There are three main models numerical using numbers, algebraic using variables and numbers and graphical models using a graph. In this project I will be finding which function, a linear, quadratic, cubic or quartic, bits fit our scatter plot for the number of diagonals polygons have. We will use by finding the r coefficient is the measure of how the function best fits the points.
