### Squared or cubic explanatory terms

Posted:

**Mon Sep 26, 2011 8:12 am**Hi,

Could I use Eviews to run a least squares model in the form of y = b + cx + dx^2 ?

I'm wondering if Eviews uses this http://www.efunda.com/math/leastsquares/lstsqr2dcurve.cfm method automatically, or do i have to do something differently to regress squared or cubic terms?

I type ls y c x x^2 to regress the equation currently.

I'm using eviews 5.0.

Thank you
