## Real-Life Applications of Complex or Imaginary Numbers

When solving a quadratic equation using the quadratic formula, it is possible for the b2 – 4ac term inside the square root (the discriminant) to be negative, thus forcing us to take the square root of a negative number. The solutions to the equation will then be complex numbers (i.e., involve the imaginary unit i). […]

## Lagrangian Interpolation

3) If e^1.3 is approximated by Langrangian interpolation from the values of e0=1, e1=2.7183, and e2 =7.3891., what are the minimum and maximum estimates for the error? Compare to the actual error. use MATLAB using “polyfit” and “polyval” functions 4) Repeat above problem but now extra polate to get e^2.7. NOTE: Find Lagrange p6(x) by […]
