Can one do a 4th order, beyond cubic fit in Graph Builder?

While discussing exploratory data analysis as a precursor to predictive modeling, Peter Hersh explains that one can use the JMP Fit Y by X platform to fit polynomials up to a 6th degree polynomial. Graph Builder does not go beyond a cubic fit.


In Fit Y by X the steps are Analyze>Fit Y by X, which will run a Bivariate fit for the variables.  From the red triangle in the Bivariate Fit window, select Fit Polynomial, and then choose the type of fit you desire.
