Can someone let me know how I can do Polynomial Regression with Apache Maths
<https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.apache.commons/commons-math3> 3.6.1
?

Below are the data points I used for my testing

My code looks like below

private void polynomialFitter(List<List<Double>> pointlist) {
final PolynomialCurveFitter fitter = PolynomialCurveFitter.create(2);
final WeightedObservedPoints obs = new WeightedObservedPoints();
for (List<Double> point : pointlist) {
}
double[] fit = fitter.fit(obs.toList());
System.out.printf("\nCoefficient %f, %f, %f", fit[0], fit[1], fit[2]);
}

The coefficients are reported as

Coefficient 12.910025, 0.000000, 0.000000

But these does not seem to be quite correct. If I use the same dataset
in Online
Polynimal Regression <http://polynomialregression.drque.net/online.php> and
in archanoid online regression <https://arachnoid.com/polysolve/> - both
reports same value as 654623237474.68250993904929103762,
28.75921919628759991574, -0.00000000023885199278

Can someone let me know what is going wrong? I have seen this question

but that is not helping me?

Thanks,
