University of Pennsylvania Error Proof. 1 Proof of Formulae for Error in Slope and Intercept of Best Fit Line This is a derivation of the propagation of the error in the dependent variable, y σ , through the formulae for the slope and the intercept to get equations for the error in the slope and the intercept, mentioned in the Least Squares Fitting with Excel document.
