    You have a system of 5 linear equations. Where are you stuck. Have you written down the equations yet?

    Set f(x_n,y_n)= p(x_n, y_n) for each of the given pairs!

    For example, f(x_0, y_0)= e^x_0 sin(y_0) while p(x_0, y_0)= c_0+ c_1x_0+ c_2y_0+ c_3x_0y_0+ c_4x_0^2+ c_5y_0^2 so one of your equations is
    c_0+ c_1x_0+ c_2y_0+ c_3x_0y_0+ c_4x_0^2+ c_5y_0^2= e^x_0sin(y_0)
