I'm looking for a function that passes through 12 points. Here is the question. Why was it closed and what can I do to make it on-topic?

    $\begingroup$ It would greatly improve your Question to add context, such as why you want such a monotone fit to your data or what approaches you've tried, even if you were unable to proceed beyond a point of difficulty. Details of this kind are not only interesting to Readers, they help to shape responses in ways you will find cogent. Moreover the Question doesn't pose a problem with the precision you think it does, but that could be discussed over there under the Question. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Jan 28 at 23:21
  • $\begingroup$ do contried ones count ? except when it multiplies y by 1.5 it's nearly linear n number of steps, what counts as an answer matters. $\endgroup$ – user645636 Jan 28 at 23:40
  • $\begingroup$ @Roddy do you mean "do contrived ones count"? $\endgroup$ – amWhy Jan 30 at 0:56
  • $\begingroup$ yes simple typo. observation gives clues though. $\endgroup$ – user645636 Jan 30 at 1:02
  • $\begingroup$ I've left some suggestions below your original question. I agree that there is not enough context to make a proper Stack Exchange answer work. The problem is that there could be so many mathematical ways to do what's described that there's no clear answer. What you need is a simple practical answer, hopefully my comments will get you started. Some calculators can handle this directly if you don't have access to a spreadsheet program. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Feb 2 at 3:52
