**Code:**

mob/verb/Algorithm_Test()

var/x = input("Value of X for the equation","X") as num

var/y = 125*(x^2)-125*x+1000

src << "[y]"

**Problem description:**

I created the equation 125*(x^2)-125*x+1000 using a program called Graph. The numbers that are suppose to show are as followed:

x=1 than Y=1000

x=2 than y=1250

x=3 than y=1750

x=4 than y=2500

x=5 than y=3500

x=6 than y=4750

x=7 than y=6250

etc

When I put those numbers in however, I get this

x=1 than Y=1250

x=2 than y=750

x=3 than y=750

x=4 than y=1250

x=5 than y=1250

x=6 than y=750

x=7 than y=750

can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

For "to the power of", you need to use **

so:

x^2 <-- WRONG in BYOND

x**2 <-- CORRECT in BYOND
