  • math 1 -

    Set of known values:

    x = 1 , y = 280

    x = 2 , y = 480

    x = 3 , y = 684

    x = 4 , y = 913

    x = 5 , y = 1205

    x = 6 , y = 1615

    The interpolating polynomial is :

    y = ( 17 x ^ 4 - 86 x ^ 3 + 139 x ^ 2 + 4730 x + 1920 ) / 24

    For x = 7 , y = 2215


    Next term :

    2215
