STEP 1: Recall what is the slope of a line

STEP 2: Recall how to calculate the slope of a line

We know that a linear equation is a straight line. The line that passes through the point

(x_{1},y_{1}) with a slope of m which represents a linear equation .

The point-slope form of this equation of the line is given by

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

Point slope form is generally used when one point and the slope of the line is known
