# Need a curve that peaks in the middle of my screen…

X goes from $801$ to $-50$. Y should peak at $240$, start and end at $400$.

I've been toying around with my Texas, how could I express a curve like the one I try to describe above? I want to create a sunrise, seen far far away like on the edge of a curve?

here is a image of what i think the curve should look like: link

xstart: 801, xstop: -10 ymax: 240 ystart + end = 400 (ish)

Could you please draw a rouch sketch of what you want and post an image? –  Jonas Meyer Dec 21 '11 at 20:50
i have supplied a linke to a image :D –  Jason94 Dec 21 '11 at 20:56

One approach would be a parabola through the three points $(-50,400), (375.5,240), (801,400)$, which would be $y=\frac{160}{375.5^2}(x-375.5)^2+240$
Alternatively, finding the circle through those three points gives approximately $(x-375.5)^2+(y-885.782)^2=417034$, or $y=-\sqrt{417034-(x-375.5)^2}+885.782$. –  Jonas Meyer Dec 21 '11 at 21:04
