Determine the equation of the following points:

(12. 270)

(14, 300)

(16, 330)

(18. 380)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I realized right away that this is not a linear set of points, so it wouldn't work out to just find the slope between two points and to find the intercept. I know the answer won't be in the format y = mx+b, but I'm not really sure how to solve this.

I guess what's bothering me is the fact that the equation jumps 20 after a seemingly normal pattern. Any tips as to what direction I should take this problem next?
