Not a mathematician at all here, actually a programmer and this came up... I need some help on something that is pretty basic I'm guessing. Given the following formula how would I go about solving the scenarios?
given the formula: y = ax^2 + bx + c
if I know that x = 20 and c = 100, how would one go about solving for y, a, and b.
I know this has something to do with the quadratic formula, but again, I really I'm not a math person at all and don't know where to begin. I do understand basic linear algebra but that's about it.
