1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I had to make a Linear Least Squares Excel template for my first week's Physics lab to analyze linear data for the rest of the semester. All of my values come out correctly, except the standard deviation values. I was wondering if someone could take a look at my template and see what the problem is. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution See attached file.

Okay, I didn't realize that Excel worked in order like that. So it would work correctly if I put m and b below the D calculation, or could I put a new cell above these that is =E26, and change E26 for the new cell in the calculation formulas for m and b?
