    Help with Linearization/Constants of Proportionality

    Sorry if this is the wrong section, but I don't think this fit well with anything.
    Anyways, my problem is that I need to find the constant of proportionality of an Excel graph with the trend line set at y = 99.944x^(-0.9999). Next, I need to Linearize it, which I also have no idea how to do. If anyone knows how to do this, thanks very much! I've Googled extensively and looked everywhere I could to get help, but I didn't find anything.
