To calculate the sum of the interior angles of a polygon in general use.
| a a 180 ( n - 2 ) a a | ̲ ¯
where n represents the number of sides of the polygon.
For an octagon with 8 sides, n = 8
sum of interior angles = 180 × ( 8 - 2 )
= 180 × 6 = 1080

In a previous task, I determined a polynomial interpolation using a system of linear equations.
The data points to be used were
((0,f(0)),(16,f(16)),(14,f(14)))
The linear equation used was of the form:
((02,01,00),(162,161,160),(142,141,140))
((a2),(a1),(a0))
((0),(13),(1))
and the polynomial of the form
p2(x)=a0+a1x+a2x2
was determined to have the coefficients
a0=0,a1=8+183,a2=48723
I am not aware of how I would use a system of linear equations to determine Q(x). Is it perhaps possible to derive the coefficients from p2? Or is there some other method of interpolation I should pursue?

I can solve a system of linear equations by adding the constituent equations together or subtracting them from one another (via the so-called "elimination" method), but can one do the same with a system of linear inequalities. In other words, is an operation of the following form valid?
x>b,a>b Therefore
x+a>y+b
