I have a simple X, Y data frame that I am trying to run regression analysis
on. The linear regression looks great, but when I use lm(formula = y ~
poly(x, degree = 5)) I get the same coeffecients. So for example if I use
degree =3 my formula would look like y = 4.2 x^3 + 3.2x^2 + 2.1x + 1.0 and
my degree 5 would look like y = 6.5x^5+ 5.4x^4 + 4.2 x^3 + 3.2x^2 + 2.1x +
1.0, which doesn't make sense to me.
I was wondering if someone knew what I was doing wrong or if this is
correct?
thanks,
Ben.
