The point slope form is defined that the difference in the y coordinate between two points (y - y1) on a line is proportional to the difference in the x coordinate points (x - x1).

Formula

Point slope form = y - y_{1} = m(x- x_{1})

Point-slope form is about having a single point and a direction and converting that between an algebraic equation and a graph.

**Examples:**

Find the equation of the line that passes through (-3, 1) with slope of 2.

x1 = -3,

y1 = 1 and

slope m = 2.

Find the equation of the line that passes through (-3, 1) with slope of 2.

x1 = -3,

y1 = 1 and

slope m = 2.

**Apply Formula:**

y - y_{1} = m(x- x_{1})

y-1 =2(x-(-3))

y-1 = 2(x+3)

y-1 = 2x+6

Therefore the Equation = 2x+6-y+1

Equation of the line = 2x-y+7
