    32.06=56.68
    34.26=56.68
    35.84=56.68
    39.2=56.68
    44.92=56.68
    52.24=56.68

    what equation do you come up for the 32.06, 34.26, 35.84, 39.2, 44.92 and 52.24 to equal 56.68

    I think you MEAN
    f(32.06)=56.68
    f(34.26)=56.68
    f(35.84)=56.68
    f(39.2)=56.68
    f(44.92)=56.68
    f(52.24)=56.68
    and are asking "what is f".
    In fact there are infinitely many functions that satisfy this- there are infinitely many functions that will give ANY finite number of data points.

    With this function, since every given value of x gives the same y value, 56.68, the simplest function is just the constant function f(x)= 56.68 for all x.

    By constant function you mean a straight line. Yes?

    A straight line, yes, but, more to the point, an horizontal line, at a height of 56.68 units above the x-axis.

    The equation is f(x) = 56.68. This is assuming that the line is always horizontal, and completely continuous with no vertical asymptotes or undefined points.
