Q1: The amount ‘A’ of a substance remaining in the reacting system after an interval of time
‘t’ in a certain chemical experiment is tabulated below:

𝑡(𝑠 ) 2 5 8 11
( ) 96 88 81 76

(a) Compute the the polynomial of degree 3 using Lagrange Interpolating Method.
(b) Estimate the amount A, remaining after 3 seconds, using the polynomial
obtained in part (a).
