**Directions for using the Equation of a Line Maker **

In the boxes on the left, enter the values for two points.
To move from one box to the next, use the Tab key.
Make sure to place the *x*-value in the first box and
the *y*-value in the second box for each point.

Click the Calculate key see the value for the slope and the y-intercept.
