 Question 28313: The general equation os a quadratic polynomial is p(x)=ax(squared)+bx+c with a,b,c all real numbers and a doesn't = 0. In this problem we show that three points in the plane uniquely determine a quad polynomial, )just as two points in aplane uniquely determine a line). Step 1. Suppose that we were given the three point (-1,1),(1,5), and (2,10). We want to find the quad poly P(x) which passes through these points. So, evaluate p at each x value. For example, since p(-1)must be 1 (why?), we get p(-1)=a(-1) squared+b(-1)+c=1 (arrow) a-b+c=1. Evaluating p(1) and p(2), we get two more equations. What are they? p(1)= p(2)= Step 2: We now have _________________ linear equations in the _______________ unknowns___,__________, and _______. Thus, we can try to solve for _,_____, and ____. Once we have values for ___,______, and __, our polynomials will be determined. Step 3: set up the augmented coefficient matrix. We can start with M= [1 -1 1 1] [? ? ? ?] [? ? ? 10]. There are 6 values missing. Where do they come from? What are they? What variable does the first column represent? The second? The third? Step 4: Using elementary row operations, we transform M into the matrix M' that looks like M'= [1 0 0 1] [0 1 0 2] [0 0 1 2]. I need to be able to explicity show the computations -- i.e the row of operations - leading from M tp M'. From this it follows that a=____, b____, and c=___. Thus our polynomial p(x) is p(x)=? Step 5: Check the answer by evaluating p(x) with the a, b and c values determined in step 4. We should have p(-1)=1, p(1)=5, and p(2)=10. Click here to see answer by longjonsilver(2297)
