y = f(x)

For convenience, we like f to be continuous and uniquely valued.

You can't get the equation of a "curve" unless you can describe its characteristic shape. For example, if you want an ellipse wlth long dimension=2a and short dimension =2b, then the equation would be:

x^2/a^2 +y^2/b^2=1

with then ellipse centered  at the 0,0 coordinate.
