Step 1
Determining the best regression model by using finite differences. The method of finite differences is used for curve fitting with polynomial models. It is best introduced by an example as shown in table given below. For the sequence of x value inputs at the regularly spaced points 3,2,1, 3, the y value outputs are shown in the table.
Table 1 is given below.
From the table, we can understand that this is third difference finite function of third degree.
This explains
f(x)=ax3+bx2+cx+d.
Step 2
Here we need to find the value of a, b, c and d
a=63!
a=66
a=1
Step 3
Taking x=0,1,1 for calculating the value of rest of the co-efficients.
f(x)=x3+bx2+cx+d
f(1)=1+bc+6
x=1
y=0
0=bc+7
7=(bc)

Also
f(1)= 1+b+c+6
8=b+c+5
b+c=3
Moreover,
f(0)=0+0+0+d
x=0
y=6
6=d
Thus, finding b and c by subtracting and adding equation (1) and (2)
2b=4
b=2
2c=10
c=5
At last the finite function becomes:
f(x)=x32x2+5x+6
Step 4
Sketching a grph from the function found above
Thus, end behaviour of f(x)=x32x2+5x+6
is described from the table as below

How does exp(x) keep showing up in mathematics
When I first learnt about e, I just treated it as another number (as far as I know, it doesn't even have a natural definition), but how is it that exp(x) is so important and keeps showing up at various places in mathematics?
