Abolish, now, one of the percipients, and the interpolation changes into ‘extrapolation.’
You claim that you actually guessed where that ship was going to be, but you followed the computer's extrapolation instead?
An extrapolation from the fact that there was vegetation below.
The last three values are those obtained by extrapolation with platinum-rhodium and platinum-iridium couples.
Abolish, now, one of the percipients, and the interpolation changes into 'extrapolation.'
A mathematical procedure designed to enable one to estimate unknown values of a parameter from known values. A common method of extrapolation is to look at data on a curve, then extend the curve into regions for which there is no data. Extrapolation is often used to predict the future.
