While working on a spreadsheet for ShadowRun2 chargen, I had trouble with
cyberwear eessence and prices that were not linear with the level selected.

For example:
Wired Reflexes:
Level l 2 Essence 55,OOO¥
Level 2 3 Essence 165,OOO¥
Level 3 5 Essence 5OO,OOO¥

Rather than enter each level as a seperate entity, I generated functions
for a parabola passing through three points with the level and cost as
coridinates. I guess all those math classes I took for my degree paid off!
:-)

Boosted Reflexes:
Cost = 1000*(12.5*(a_Ratings^2)-12.5*a_Ratings+15)
Essence loss = 0.4*(a_Ratings^2)-0.5*a_Ratings+0.6

Dermal Plating:
Cost = (10.5*(a_Ratings^2)-22.5*a_Ratings+18)*1000

Vehicle Control Rig:
Cost = 1000*(96*(a_Ratings^2)-240*a_Ratings+156)

Wired Reflexes:
Cost = 1000*(112.5*(a_Ratings^2)-227.5*a_Ratings+170)

Every American should want President Trump and his administration to handle
the coronavirus epidemic effectively and successfully. Those who seem eager
to see the president fail and to call every administration misstep a fiasco
risk letting their partisanship blind them to the demands not only of civic
responsibility but of basic decency.
