I have these points: -
x=[1 1.5 2 2.5 3];
y=[19.74 14.26 12.34 11.45 10.97];
and I know I can do a very rough approximation of a curve of best fit simply by "joining the dots" using: -
plot(x,y)
but is there a way to get MATLAB to join them using a curve of best fit?
I'm not sure exactly how to define 'curve of best fit', but I suppose an example might be if one had a string of x-values (+ & -) and each one had a corresponding y-value that was just x^2, then a curve of best fit for those points would show the get close to showing the curve y=x^2.
I obviously don't know the equation of my curve, which I guess is one of the issues that requires a certain method to be adopted over another.

I would suggest you in put your data in terms of x and y. next type cftool. you will get a new window which will ask you to input x and y. then creat data and next step go to fitting option and click new fitting you will see lots of curves. Fit them one by one and see which one is best fit for your data.You will get equation as well.

x=[1 1.5 2 2.5 3];
y=[19.74 14.26 12.34 11.45 10.97];
xi=1:0.2:3
method='spline'
yi=interp1(x,y,xi,method)
plot(xi,yi)

this method can be used with any set of points?or only with the given set of points in the question?

The title of your question says line, bu the body of the question says curve. If you really interested in a straight line, then lsline will do the job.
x=[1 1.5 2 2.5 3];
y=[19.74 14.26 12.34 11.45 10.97];
plot(x,y, '*')
lsline
The source of lsline is available:
type lsline
and you can see it does all the work with polyfit, so it should be possible to create a enhanced version that fits higher order polynomials or your own custom curve.

I took the points and formed a curve using spline function (using spline method and interpl command). But now I want to get the equation of the curve generated.
How should I go about that???

The equation below is good enough:
y = p1+p2/(p3-x)^2;

How did you do that? Curve Fitting Toolbox?
