Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you have the excel file or the raw data instead of a picture of data?

In any case,  you shouldn't use PL/SQL to solve this.  Instead use the built in SQL aggregate function REGR_SLOPE.
 

SELECT REGR_SLOPE(dependent_variables, independent_variables)  FROM yourtable

if you're trying to do it "manually" then you can use the basic SUM and COUNT aggregate functions.  This does assume every (dep,indep) pair is not null for both elements, which is true for your sample data.

select  ((SUM(dep * indep) - SUM(indep) * SUM(dep) / COUNT(*)) / COUNT(*))  / ((SUM(POWER(indep, 2)) - POWER(SUM(indep), 2) / COUNT(*)) / COUNT(*)) from yourtable
