Hello everyone, I wanted to ask how I can make the legend of the graph be the result of the linear regression that is done with the command 'fit', and that polynomial represent it in the legend, for example y = ax + b, there will be some way to do it automatically or is it done manually?. Thanks.

load census;
f=fit(cdate,pop,'poly2') ;
h = plot(f,cdate,pop) ;
legendinfo = legend(h) ;
f =
Linear model Poly2: f(x) = p1*x^2 + p2*x + p3 Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds): p1 = 0.006541 (0.006124, 0.006958) p2 = -23.51 (-25.09, -21.93) p3 = 2.113e+04 (1.964e+04, 2.262e+04)
legendinfo.String{2} = formula(f) ;

load census;
f=fit(cdate,pop,'poly2') ;
eq = formula(f); %Formula of fitted equation
parameters = coeffnames(f); %All the parameter names
values = coeffvalues(f); %All the parameter values
for idx = 1:numel(parameters)
param = parameters{idx};
l = length(param);
loc = regexp(eq, param); %Location of the parameter within the string
while ~isempty(loc)
%Substitute parameter value
eq = [eq(1:loc-1) num2str(values(idx)) eq(loc+l:end)];
loc = regexp(eq, param);
h = plot(f,cdate,pop) ;
legendinfo = legend(h) ;
legendinfo.String{2} = eq;
