Top

Point-slope form is also known as point-gradient form. It is used to calculate the equation of a straight line passing through a point( $x_{1}$, $y_{1}$) with a slope(m).

 

Steps to Calculate Point Slope Form

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Observe the point($x_{1}$, $y_{1}$) and Slope(m) of the line given



Step 2 :  

Apply the formula: (y - $y_{1}$) = m (x - $x_{1}$) [Point-slope form]
