Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to understand what is the best way to solve problems like the one below. I have a few data points and I need to which function best describes that data.

(x, y) = (-3, -32) (-2, 16) (-1, 8) (0,4) (1,2) (2, 1)

note that the y parameter in the first data point is -32 and not 32.

Is there a process to solve such problems or do I have to guess the function?

Thanks.
