I've googled, played around with this for days. Any hits, nudges would be greatly appreciated. I don't want the answer. "If 10 = 31, 9 = 44, 4 = 250 and 3 = 353, then which number, in the same context, equals 1000?"
Looks like a decaying exponential curve. The equation is of the form y = A e^(-kx) where A and k are constants. I will spare you the answer.
If you want an easier way to do this than running an exponential fit, look at the ratio between the 9 and 10 value (44/31 = 1.42). Notice that it is the same as the ratio between the 3 and 4 value (353/250 = 1.41) . Every time the number goes down by one, the value goes up by around 41.4% give or take due to rounding. So you would guess that if 2, then 353 x 1.414 = ~500.
