Formulae for Determining the Slope and Intercept

To find the slope, calculate the deviation of each x from mean, , and calculate the deviation of each y from its mean, . The numerator is the product of the deviation of each x and y pair, the denominator is the sum of the squared deviations of all of the x-values. Thus the formula is:
