April. 5, 2010 - Interpolation and Extrapolation (Chapter 6)
Today in class I learned how to interpolate and extrapolate. I also learned the difference between them because I honestly didn't know the difference before. Interpolating is when you are given a set of values and you estimate between them.
When x=2.5 then y=?
Interpolate the given values
Extrapolating is when you estimate a value beyond a given set of values.
When y=12 then x=?
Extrapolate beyond given values by extending the line
Thanks for reading one of my journal entries. Please leave a comment!
