But that's all plain and simple math, for the most part... barely above college algebra with some factoring and all that. I never pursued higher math courses in college (they weren't necessary for the chosen degree).

Maybe somebody who knows something about this can help me out.

So I have two sets of numbers:

81 = 8.1

256 = 6.4

480 = 4.8

900 = 4.2

2500 = 3.5

X = Y

I want an equation that can basically solve Y, no matter what I feed in. Is there some kind of magical tool or solution I can use to come up with this equation, with a given set of inputs? I currently do these things by trial and error, and it takes uh, a lot of trial. It seems like this is something that COULD be programatically generated, and seems like some kind of automagical tool or technique might already be out there that I can use.

Hell, it could just be some general purpose college math that I never took.

Any thoughts?

I assume that what you mean is

If that's the case, I've made you a graph that might help (or might not).
