There can be infinitely many answers to that.

Hello, rosagiang!

Quote:
Find formula for: .

The problem is rather silly . . .

Find a function that passes through two points.

Code:
|
|   *(1,24)
|
|
|
|       *(2,12)
|
|
|
- - + - + - + - - -
|   1   2

As Shadow pointed out, there is an infinite number of functions.

. . . . . and so on.
