2. Find the slope of a line fitted to each type of expense, to see how that expense changed during the time period 1990 through 1995. To find the slope for Rent/House Payments, position the cursor in, say, cell H4 and type =SLOPE(B4:G4,B3:G3). The slope of the best-fitting line will be displayed. Cursor to cell H5 and similarly type =SLOPE(B5:G5,B3:G3). Notice that the first cell range denotes the expenses and the second cell range denotes the year. Continue to find these slopes for all the five types of expenses.

If you have had some experience with cutting and pasting Excel formulas, you could type =SLOPE(B4:G4,B$3:G$3) in cell H4 and then copy this formula to cells H5 through H8.

The slope indicates approximately how much the expenses are increasing or decreasing per year. For example Rent/House Payments increased approximately $23.43 per year. Transportation decreased approximately $4.83 per year.

 

3. Now make a graph showing how all these expenses changed between 1990 and 1995.

Highlight cells B3 through G8 and click on the graph icon. Choose XY(Scatter) and then click on the fourth subtype picture "Scatter with data points connected by lines." Then click Next.

Click on the Series Tab and type in the names of the five types of expenses. Click Next.

Click on the Titles tab and type "Monthly Expenses" for the Chart Title. Type "Year" for the Value(X)Axis and "Dollars" for the Value(Y)Axis. Click Next.

Click on As Object in and then click Finish. You can move or resize your graph as you wish. By clicking or double-clicking on any part of your graph, you can change the size, font, placement, etc. of that part. Your final graph should look similar to the following graph.

 

 

4. You can choose to graph only some of these expenses. For example, suppose you want the graph to show only Utility and Entertainment expenses. Highlight cells B3 through G3. Then hold down the Ctrl key and highlight cells B5 through G5. Next hold down the Ctrl key again and highlight cells B8 through G8. (All three of these rows should now be highlighted.) Next click on the graph icon and proceed as before. Your graph should look something like this:
