For a complete lesson on point slope form, go to http://www.MathHelp.com - 1000+ online math lessons featuring a personal math teacher inside every lesson! In this lesson, students learn to write the equation of a line given a point on the line and the slope of the line, by using the point-slope formula, which states that given a point (x1, y1) and a slope m, the equation of the line can be written as y - y1 = m(x - x1). For example, if a line passes through the point (3, -2), and has a slope of 4, its equation can be written: y + 2 = 4(x - 3). From here, the equation can be converted to either slope-intercept or standard form. Note that a horizontal line passing through a given point has the equation y = the y-coordinate of the given point, and a vertical line passing through a given point has the equation x = the x-coordinate of the given point.
