 Question 130117: find a quadratic equation whose graph will fit the following points (1,2) (0,5) (-1,14)Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!find a quadratic equation whose graph will fit the following points (1,2) (0,5) (-1,14) ---------- Substitute each pair of point values into the form y = ax^2+bx+c. That will give you three equations in the unknowns a,b,and c. Solve the system of three equations to find a,b, and c. Write the formula. ------------- I get y=3x^2-6x+5 ================ Cheers, Stan H.
