Interpolation functions

1. 1. Interpolation produces a function that matches the given data exactly. The function then can be utilized to approximate the data values at intermediate points.
2. 2. Interpolation may also be used to produce a smooth graph of a function for which values are known only at discrete points, either from measurements or calculations.
3. 3. Given data points Obtain a function, P(x) P(x) goes through the data points Use P(x) To estimate values at intermediate points
