Point Slope Form Calculator

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). Enter values in point slope form calculator below to find the Equation of a straight line.

    Formula

    Point slope form = y - y1 = m(x- x1)

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


    Point slope equation calculator Examples:

    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 - y1 = m(x- x1)
    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
