W.O.W. Extrapolate

RR164 Word of the Week: Extrapolate
I have no idea why this word came into my head…wait I watched Orville; don’t all those SciFi space travel shows talk about extrapolating data?
In any event, the etymology is a little long on this one but I still break it down into layman’s term as much as possible.
Cambridge: Extrapolate-to guess or think about what might happen using information that is already known.
Etymology: 1867, noun of action from extrapolate by analogy of interpolation; original sense was “an inserting of intermediate terms in a mathematical series.” Transferred sense of “drawing of a conclusion about the future based on present tendencies” is from 1889.
