Python Question

if I do a fit on some data I got and want to plot that I also want to Show the fitparameters which I get as well as reduced chi square and r square in the legend of my plot.

What would I have to do to get this done?

Sorry if that is a trivial question, I'm new to python so I might not know or see the obvious thing.

Here is how to perform a fit and plot the result in a legend in matplotlib.

```
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import scipy.optimize
x = np.arange(10)
y = np.arange(10)/5.+np.random.rand(10)
func = lambda x, a, b: a*x+b
popt, pcov = scipy.optimize.curve_fit(func, x,y)
plt.plot(x,y, marker="o", linestyle="none", label="data")
plt.plot(x,func(x, popt[0], popt[1]), label="fit"+str(popt))
plt.legend()
plt.show()
```
