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?

Of course, for this particular example, it is obvious that the line y= x+ 5 goes exactly through every point so that is what you would get.
