Long Exam
August 11, 2011 11:30-1:30
Instructions:
i. Turn all mobile phones OFF during examination period. Any form of
cheating will be strictly penalized
ii. Start the solution to each problem on a new sheet; do not write at the back;
iii. Pass your answer sheets together with this questionnaire at the end of the
examination period.

1. 10 points. For the given data below:

X 1 2 3
Y 3 6 5.7

Determine the value of y at x=2.5 using
(a.) lagrange interpolating polynomial P2(x), and
(b.) a least squares line.

2. 15 points. The partial derivative y x f
x
, of y x f , with respect to x is
obtained by holding y fixed and differentiating with respect to x.
Similarly, y x f
y
, is found by holding x fixed and differentiating with
respect to y. Mathematically,
