Comprehensive relationships are given for least-squares fitting of linear functions, corresponding to various parametric conditions, but limited to fallibility in either abscissa or ordinate, but not in both. For a nonlinear function linearized by suitable change of variable(s), the given least-squares relationships may be used validly if the weights are appropriately altered. The necessary linearizing weight factors are derived and verified in numerical examples.
