# LINESTXDAX Function (Statistical)

Uses the Least Squares method to calculate a straight line that best fits the data, then returns a table describing the line. The data result from expressions evaluated for each row in a table.

## Syntax

LINESTX ( <Table>, <ExpressionY>, <ExpressionX> [, <ExpressionX> [, … ] ] [, <Const>] )
Parameter Attributes Description
Table

The table containing the rows for which the expressions will be evaluated.

ExpressionY

The expression to be evaluated for each row of the table, to obtain the known y-values.

ExpressionX
Repeatable

The expressions to be evaluated for each row of the table, to obtain the known x-values.

Const Optional

A constant TRUE/FALSE value specifying whether to force the constant b to equal 0. If true or omitted, b is calculated normally. If false, b is set to 0.

## Return values

The table returned has the following columns:

• SlopeN (one for each X expression)
• Intercept
• StandardErrorSlopeN (one for each X expression)
• StandardErrorIntercept
• CoefficientOfDetermination
• StandardError
• FStatistic
• DegreesOfFreedom
• RegressionSumOfSquares
• ResidualSumOfSquares
