Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know that these points are (x,y) points respectively. So you can substitute in the three points so that you get three equations in three unknwons. For example!e the first eqn is: 1=a*(4^2) + b (4) + c Just follow the same logic and solve for a,b,c in whatever system you get
