solving quadratic for randomly determined points
I am trying to write code to construct a parabola based on three points which are randomly determined at run-time. The problem I am having is that I cannot reduce any equations due to the fact that none of the variables have known values at the time of writing the equations (they will only be known at run-time).

Hi Justin. This may not help, but who knows?
