```Hello Roderik,

plug in your y and t values and try:

\!\(InputForm\`\(y1 = 2\n
y2 = 5\n
t1 = 1\n
t2 = 7\n
Solve[{y1 == u\ \[ExponentialE]\^\(a\ t1\),
y2 == u\ \[ExponentialE]\^\(a\ t2\)}, {u, a}]\)\)

By the way, MATHEMATICA uses the widely accepted value of 2.71828..... for
Euler's Number "e".

I have got two coordinates out of graph. The line through the
coordinates could be described as:

y = U * e^(a * t)

(e is Exponetial e (approx. 2.37))

t is the x-value, I have give two points (t1,y1) and (t2,y2)

I have tried several things (Solve and Fit for example), but I can't
get the function.
Does anyone know what should be the input to let Mathematica solve the
a and U in the formula.
