How to use "Extrapolate" in context?

The word "extrapolate" derives from the ancient Latin word extrapolare, meaning "to stretch or extend." In mathematical terms, extrapolation is the process of extending an equation or a model beyond its prescribed boundaries in order to obtain more accurate results.

Mathematicians use extrapolation to calculate the characteristics of a solution to a equation beyond what is explicitly stated. For example, if a mathematical equation is written to describe the movement of a particle in a two-dimensional plane, a mathematician may use extrapolation to calculate the movement of the particle in a three-dimensional space.
