Guessing the next number with c#

P: 1
Hello there,

I wonder how can I guess things. It is little complicated.

For example;
An archer makes 6 hits in 10 shots 3 hits in 17 shots and x hits in 20 shots

It's like a program which guesses a football match results with looking statistics.But what I'm trying to do is much simpler. There're just 2 variables and program trying to guess next number with looking others.

Thanks for any help

in an equation: (3-6)/(17-10) = (x-6)/(20-10)

in words:
your score drops (3-6) with 7 more attempts (17-10)
how much does it drop (x-6) with 10 more attempts (20-10)

The statistical technique you're looking for is regression analysis. Either polynomial or linear depending on the type of relationship between the independent and dependent variables.

Regression analysis is not necessarily a simple topic.
