    Hello, inna!

    There are a brizillion possible formulas . . .


    Can you please help me to find a formula, based on the given ordered pairs:

    . . f(x) \;=\;{(0,2),\;(2, 4.5),\;(3,6.75)}

    Since the points are not collinear, the simplest function is a quadratic.

    . . Example:. f(x) \;=\;\tfrac{1}{12}(4x^2 + 7x + 24)



    Here's a cute one: . f(x) \;=\;2(1.5^n)
