I would not be a very good Christian if I did that.

When I took over the farm in 2008 I said I was going to play by the rules even though agriculture has the highest amount of regulation in any industry. However it has always worked out well for me even though I had no idea how difficult playing by the rules would be at times.

So I'll let you guys cook the books, I'll stick to lamb and keep my integrity in place.

For taxes, it's traditional to just lie. :|

The spreadsheet has three tabs, the first has the derived equation function, the second has the equation fit information and the third has the original data.

I would not use this polynomial equation for any other tank, it is derived as a custom equation for the data on the subject tank only.

dll - mathematics fat-head :)
