 ```Hello I am looking for a simple example which I can follow showing Least linear square method. I am hoping to find an example I can follow as I do not have a strong math background and I want to use this for a 2 dimensional graph with about 5 results on it. Thanks, Justin.```
 ```Hello justin! You'll find a step by step example of how to manually calculate the regression equation for a given set of points in a two dimensional graph at the following links: Regression http://www.cs.uni.edu/~Campbell/stat/reg.html#form Linear Regression http://pirate.shu.edu/~wachsmut/Teaching/MATH1101/Relations/linear-regression.html The second link also includes a tutorial on how to calculate it in Excel. Bear in mind that in order to do this, you'll have to install the Data Analysis Toolpack. This can be found in Tools - Add-Ins. Google search terms ordinary least squares ://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ordinary+least+squares I hope this helps! If you have any doubt regarding my answer, please don't hesitate to request clarification before rating it. Otherwise, I await your rating and final comments. Best wishes! elmarto```
