Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure if this is the best approach, but here's one idea... Since it passes through (0,7), it has a yintercept of 7.\[\Large\bf y=ax^4+bx^3+cx^2+dx+7\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can setup a system of equations using the other points provided.\[\Large (1,16):\]\[\Large\bf 16=a+b+c+d+7\]Then another point gives us:\[\Large\bf (2,17):\]\[\Large \bf 17=a2^4+b2^3+c2^2+d2+7\]
