## Main Question or Discussion Point

Quite confused. I've read the book/online definitions yet I suppose I may need a simpler explanation.

Lets say I have a table of x y values.

x 1 2 3 4 5

y 6 7 8 9 10

how would I carry out the linear least squares fit of the data to determine the slope and y-intercept?
