X is a positive real number greater than or equal to zero (or 0.0). Y is an integer as seen in the second column above.
Can this data be represented with a formula that only uses either addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, modulus, or the power (^) function, or any combination of these?
The function f(x) = x + (0^x) almost works, but it needs a little bit of tweaking.
If possible, I would like to avoid using any abs() value functions, or max() functions, or "if-else" programming logic, or roundup() functions. I'm curious if I can find a formula that only uses basic math operators.
