Hello!

**You ever want to produce a formula directly from a Graph,***Without interpolation?* (simple graphs, please, no polynomials)

Well, now you can!

First, grab at least 3 points off of your graph. (more points give

more resolution to the graph)

Use the following as a model. (x,y,x,y,x,y)

{2,4,3,9,4,16} Now that you have your points, go online to:

*The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences*Introduce these numbers into the block requesting your points,

hit enter, and Voila! the formula(s) is listed below. (x^2 should be it)

I learned this little trick from a math video from Teach12.com, indirectly.

I have a phrase that helps me deal with unknowns, thustly;

*If there is a pattern, there is a sequence; If there is a sequence, then*

there is a formula; If there is a formula, then there is a family of

formulas; If there is a family of formulas, then there exists solutions

for all variables in the problem from beginning to end.Just thought I would share a tool, maybe it will help you, if you need it.
