I have a divided differences table and I have all my x values but I am missing one of my p(x). I need to find the first, second, and third differences for p(x) and I just am confused and do not know how to do it. The table looks like this....
x-value: -1 0 1 3 4
P(x): 3 -1 2 -2 ? (How do I find this value?)
p(x): ? ? ? ?
2p(x): ? ? ?
3p(x): ? ?
Please Help I'm so lost!!!
