Unformatted text preview: the Gaussian-elimination algorithm. I know that you know how to solve it. I want to see if you know the Gaussian-elimination algorithm. x 3 3 3 x 1 . 4 x 2 . x 3 8 2 x 1 . x 2 x 3 2 6. (12.5%) Find the 3 nd order polynomial that best fits the data. Find the set of simultaneous equations that must be solved. Do not solve them just mention what steps you would take from that point to find the coefficients of the polynomial. x f(x) 0 -1 1 1 2 1 3 0 4 -1 7. (12.5%) Given the following 4 points find a 3 nd order Lagrange interpolating polynomial that passes through the points. You do not need to simplify the polynomial. x f(x) -1 3 0 3 1 7 2 21 8. (12.5%) Given the following function in tabular form, integrate the function from 1 to 7. Use the multiple application version of Simpson's 1/3.
