**Finding the missing terms**

Using the difference operators and shifting operator we can able
to find the missing terms.

**Example 5.10**

From the following table find the missing value

*Solution:*

Since only four values of *f*(*x*) are given, the polynomial which fits
the data is of degree three. Hence fourth differences are zeros.

**Example 5.11**

Estimate the production for 1964 and 1966 from the following data

*Solution:*

Since five values are given, the polynomial which fits the data is
of degree four.
