I try to use

InterpolatingPolynomial[{f[1]=2,f'[1]=3,f[2]=6, f'[2]=7, f''[2]=8}, Method->"Hermite"]

in WolframAlpha, but it's wrong.

InterpolatingPolynomial[{{{1}, 2, 3}, {{2}, 6, 7, 8}}, x] – Dr. belisarius Jan 14 '13 at 19:40
Thank you! You can add that as an answer I think. – deem Jan 14 '13 at 19:50
Is this a wolfram alpha question, are they on topic? – image_doctor Jan 14 '13 at 19:57
Are you using the WolframAlpha website directly, or Mathematica? If you are using the website directly, then it is off-topic as this website is dedicated to Mathematica only. – rcollyer Jan 14 '13 at 20:05
I use both of them. – deem Jan 14 '13 at 20:06

You should try

InterpolatingPolynomial[{{{1}, 2, 3}, {{2}, 6, 7, 8}}, x]
