WHAT DOES EXTRAPOLATE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Extrapolation

In mathematics, extrapolation is the process of estimating, beyond the original observation range, the value of a variable on the basis of its relationship with another variable. It is similar to interpolation, which produces estimates between known observations, but extrapolation is subject to greater uncertainty and a higher risk of producing meaningless results. Extrapolation may also mean extension of a method, assuming similar methods will be applicable. Extrapolation may also apply to human experience to project, extend, or expand known experience into an area not known or previously experienced so as to arrive at a knowledge of the unknown . The extrapolation method can be applied in the interior reconstruction problem. Example illustration of the extrapolation problem, consisting of assigning a meaningful value at the blue box, at, given the red data points.
