    i solved it with a painful method ... actually i've evaluated all of coefficients of g(x). but i lookin for a better method.

    You can find a, b ,c, d using a symbolic manipulator and you get \[ \begin{array}{c} a=-3.14012 \\ b=-0.571167 \\ c=0.437829 \\ d=1.27346 \end{array}\\ g(x)=x^6+4 x^5-3 x^4-13 x^3-3x^2+4 x+1\\ g(1)=-9 \] This is probably the same way you did it. I will think about another method.
