Hah! The traditional problem that I should be old enough and wise enough to be sceptical about!

Just because one of my reference works declared something to be a constant, that does not mean I should believe them. It may have been a constant when people were using an abacus to add with, but it ain't now. looks like I have to do some research and then write yet another polynomial.

the first and second sets of errors, moved to an understandable range and rounded:-

1.7 -0.1
1.6 -0.1
1.7 0.0
1.8 0.1
1.9 0.2
2.1 0.3
2.2 0.3
1.7 0.1
1.5 -0.2
1.5 -0.3
1.7 -0.2
2.0 0.1
1.8 0.0

My target accuracy was -3.0 >> +3.0

I took the so called 'constant' and adjusted it by bracketing down to new values, and have learned that although the 'constant' changes very slowly, it does change. I tweaked the digit in the eighth
significate position.

Constants ain't!
