New at excel and I am trying my best, but my best is failing. I am at the final stages of Spring semester and final project. I can only use excel and word to do my college algebra. Project is on Linear equation (standard form) with dealing with the U.S. population starting from 1950-2010 (most questions are aimed at) then one is aimed for 1790-2010 and last is predicting the population in 2050.

My excel chart slope -intercept form is y=3E+06x-5E+09 (this is the one with most of the questions). First what does the E stand for? Why are the zero in front of 6x & 9? And am I right the standard form for the equation is 6x-y-2E=-9

It is driving me insane.
