1. The function r(w) = 2aw-2 + b + c where a, b and c are constants.
You are given that r(1) = 5; r’(4) = 12 and r′’(2) = 18.
By substituting for w in the above function and its derivatives or otherwise, show that the three
given function values give rise to a system of linear equations in the unknowns a, b and c
I am pretty sure that there is some kind of exponent on " 2aw-2 "
is it 2aw^-2 ???
clarify before I attempt it.
