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.
