## Assignment Seven:

## Slope and The Equation of a Line

We have recently learned the formula for finding slope given
two points. Then, we learned how to write the equation of a line
in slope-intercept form, y = mx + b, given two points. This work
was quite tedious and time consuming. So, now that we understand
how to use the formulas and have a working knowledge of them,
we will use technology to streamline the process.

In this assignment, you will use a spreadsheet to find the
slope of a line from two given points. After this has been done,
the spreadsheet will be modified so that it calculate the slope,
the y-intercept, and the equation of the line. Remember, that
if you need help with using Excel, either use the help command
or refer to **assignment
