its a constant we solve for it by putting in the x and y values from the point (1,1) 1=a(1-3)(1-2)(1+1)

Oh I see. I thought I could just add one on to the equation y=(X-3).... This makes sense. Thank you.

u could also use -b/a = x1+x2 and c/a = x1x2 and solve for a and b or c then use the fact that f[1]=1 to find c or b
