$$p(x)$$ is a quadratic polynomial with real coefficients. For all real numbers $$x$$,
$$x^2-2x+2\leq p(x)\leq 2x^2-4x+3$$
$$p(11)=181$$. Find $$p(16)$$.
On a graph of $$y=x^2$$, two lines are drawn at $$x=a$$ and $$x=-b$$ (for $$a,b>0$$. The points where these lines intersect the parabola are connected.
