When we know of a point that belongs to a line and its slope, we can use the information to determine the equation of a line. We can use the point-slope form of a line or to obtain it. In the point-slope form, m is the slope of the line and is a known coordinate. The best form of the equation of a line is called the slope-intercept form or , where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept with coordinate (0,b). This worksheet will provide examples of transforming the point-slope form to the slope-intercept form.
