I have a set of 2D coordinates(in an Excel Spreadsheet), from which I need to draw best fit lines/curves. I have to design a windows application in Visual Basic which will get the points from the spreadsheet and draw best fit curves. Can anyone please help me how to start this project, what libraries I might use and what things to keep in mind.

What I have tried:

I have no idea how to include graphics in VB. I have previous experience in VB, where I designed minor applications like calculator.

Your question is a bit vague. For instance, what kind of regression do you need to use?
Note Excel does provide tools for best fit curves, see, for instance: Excel: Fitting curves to your data using least squares[^].
If you really need to compute least squares using VB.NET, then you will find many examples on the web, just Google for[^].

Do you know that Excel can plot your data?
And Excel have a feature to do curve fitting to your data, it is in Excel for 20+ years.
