# Interpolation and Extrapolation

### What is Interpolation and Extrapolation?

In maths, we use interpolation and extrapolation to predict values in relation to the data.Â InterpolationÂ refers to using the data in order to predict data within the dataset.Â Extrapolation is the use of the data set to predict beyond the data set. The following videos explain this concept in more detail and provide examples on how to make predictions.

### What is the Difference?
