To calculate delta_H and delta_S for the two proteins, its enough to just calculate the slope and the y intercept for each graph.
For calculating the slope, we have the formula,
slope = change in y/change in x = dy/dx

Here, from the graph, we cannot find the exact values for dy and dx as the points are not clear. But its a very simple calulation which you can easily do.
