Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Assuming you have a quadratic in the form \[y = ax^2 + bx + c\] Taking one of those points and plugging into the equation above for x and y you will get a linear equation with 3 unknowns (a, b, and c). Doing the same for the other 2 points will give you two other equations. Using these 3 equations you can solve for the 3 unknowns and plug the values you find for a, b, and c back into the original equation above.
