Calculator Lesson for finding the equation of a straight line.

1) On your TI-83+ calculator, click on the STAT button, then Enter so you can edit lists.

2) Place the X coordinates into L1, and the Y coordinates into L2.

3) Click on the STAT button again, and move to the calculate menu at the top of the screen.

4) Click on LinReg(ax+b) Press enter.

5) Press enter again, and you will see a screen that gives you: y=ax+b (in this case, a stands for slope)

The value for a = slope

The value for b is the Y intercept

By substituting these values into the equation y=mx+b, you will have the equation of the line that connects the two points you have provided coordinates for.
