Hey folks,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Bit of a complex question here, but I'm hoping someone smarter than myself can help me figure this out. I want to make a parabolic curve that is controlled by 2 constants S and T. I know that in y = Ax^{2}+ Bx + C

C = S

as one of the points I can give from the if statements I'm working from gives the point (0,S)

the other 2 point however make it difficult for me to convert 3 points to the equation as, well, you'll see:

(T,100)

(T+100,100)

Can someone please help explain to me how to make these three points

(0,S) (T,100) (T+100,100)

into a parabolic equation without assuming a set value for either S or T
