OK, I know this can be done... I've seen the result. But I want to know HOW to solve the following for a, b, and c. ax1^2+bx1+c=y1 ax2^2+bx2+c=y2 ax3^2+bx3+c=y3 Of course, I am looking for solutions in terms of x and y  for example, I don't want something like a=bc^24x3, I'm looking for a=x3y23x1  or whatever it really is.
