What is Point Slope Form?

This formula is used only when we know the slope of the straight line and a point on the straight line.

The equation of a straight line whose slope is m and which passes through a point (x1, y1) is found using the point slope form.

Point-Slope Form

The equation of the point-slope formula is:

y – y1 = m ( x – x1)

Equation of the line

Point Slope form Calculator

The equation for the slope of a straight line is:

y – y1 = m ( x – x1)
Equation DescriptionDerivation method
The equation for the slope of a straight line isSlope\;m=\frac{Diff.\;in\;y\;-\;coordinate}{Diff.\;in\;x\;-\;coordinate}
Now the Equation is :m=\frac{y\;-\;y1\;}{x-\;x1}
Multiplying both sides by (x−x1)m\;(x\;-\;x1)\;=\;y-\;y1
This can be written as,y-\;y1\;=\;\;m\;(x\;-\;x1)

where,

  • (x, y) is a random point on the straight line used as variables while applying the formula.
  • m is the slope of the straight line.
  • (x1,y1) is a fixed point on the straight line.

The equation is useful only when we have:

  • one point on the line: (x1,y1)
  • and the Slope of the line: m,

Hence the point-slope formula is proved.

Slope-Intercept Form

slope-intercept form

Slope-intercept form calculator is the commonly used form for the equation of a line and is derived as,

y = mx + b
Equation DescriptionDerivation method
The Point-Slope Form equation isy-\;y1\;=\;\;m\;(x\;-\;x1)
(x1 , y1) is actually (0 , b)y\;-\;b\;=\;m\;(x\;-\;0)
That is y\;-\;b\;=\;m\;x
Put b on another sidey\;=\;m\;x\;+\;b

where,

  • m is the slope.
  • b is the value called the y-intercept.
  • point (x1, y1) is actually at (0, b).

It is same as point-slope form except that this equation involves the slope of a line and its y-intercept , rather than the slope of a line and a point on the line.

It is the advance case of point-slope form shows that the Point on the line is also the y-intercept.

Because of the slope and y-intercept, it is easy to write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form, and also to graph it.

Hence the slope-Intercept form is proved.

Intercept Form

Intercept Form

Intercept form equation of a line is one of the method to find the equation of a line.

Here, we will find the equation of a straight line by using x- intercept and y - intercept. 

The Intercept Form is expressed as,

\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}=1
Equation DescriptionDerivation method
The Intercept Form equation is\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}=1

Where,

  • x- intercept  =  a
  • y- intercept  =  b

Solved Examples

Example 1 :

Question : - (x1, y1) = (2, 1) And m = 5

Answer :-

DescriptionSolved Equation
The slope of the line l isy - y1 = m (x - x1)
Put values as mentioned in the question.
Now the equation will be :
y - 1 = 5 (x - 2)
Now multiply 5 by x-2(y-1)=5(x-2)
Which can be specified as:y=5x-10+1
y=5x-9
Final Equation5x-y-9=0

Example 2 :

Question : - (x1, y1) = (2, 4) And m = 6

Answer :-

DescriptionSolved Equation
The slope of the line l isy - y1 = m (x - x1)
Put values as mentioned in the question.
Now the equation will be :
y - 4 = 5 (x - 2)
Now multiply 5 by x - 2y - 4 = 5x - 12
Which can be specified as:y=5x -10 + 4
y = 5x - 6
Final Equation5x-y-6=0
