I am not a math person but need an answer to an important question.

X * .5 = 238.11

X * 1 = 300

X * 2 = 377.98

X * 3 = 432.67

X * 4 = 476.22

X * 5 = 512.99

What is the equation for X?

Perhaps it's too difficult to compute, the answer are the results from a program, I was tring to reverse it to find out an equation for how it arrived at the answers given. Thanks.

If you have excel, you could type make a chart with the x values {0.5,1,2...} and y values {238.11,300....} Then paste on a trendline, and see what gets you an R^2 value of 1 (But that'll only work if X is a polynomial, logarithm, exponent or power-of-X function)
