Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You set up an equation. The form is y=ax^2+bx+c. For each set of points starting with (0,0) You plug in for y and x. That is how you get started.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you learned matrixes yet? Because you can use your calc to solve that... If not just set up 3 equations where you replace y=ax^2+bx+c, and then you can either substitute or cancel.
