I'll be honest, I don't understand most of what's going on in this forum, so forgive me if this isn't the right place.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to extrapolate a quadratic curve between two points (my x values). These are known, as are the corresponding y values and the y' (or dy/dx if you prefer) values.

Much as I like working things out on my own, I'm not sure where to start on this. Other than trial and error, what methods are there for working this out?

It's been a couple of years since I studied maths properly so I'm kinda rusty to say the least.

Cheers

Bob
