If you can hazard a guess as to the form of the function, then you can fit almost anything. For example, here is your data:
Let's see how well a second order polynomial fits:
The answer is: it fits really well! You can also pick other functional forms, to see how well they fit. You can read about this kind of function-finding in the help file for
Here you can see how well the function fits the points by plotting:
