Hello, I am a new user so please forgive me if I fail to include anything.

When using the 'SLOPE' function in Excel 2007, is the returned value in degrees, percent or radians? Below is an example:

Column A (Y-values)

2359.7546

2359.6244

2359.4944

2357.1235

2356.7319

2356.4566

2355.6608

2355.2594

Column B (X-values)

0.0000

0.5208

0.5814

5.6406

5.7726

7.6469

11.7451

13.3342

When I use the function " =SLOPE(A1:A8;B1:B8) " I get the following result: -0.349. Is this number reported in degrees, percent, or radians?

Assuming that the value is not in degrees but simply an angle, I then use the function " =DEGREES(-0.349). The result from this function is -20.

Am I correct in interpreting this value (-20) as being the slope in degrees?

Does this seem to be a correct way of converting the original slope value into degrees or am I wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
