 Question 22409: Write an equation in point-slope form of the line.Answer by Joel0d(1)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!point-slope form: y-y1 = m(x-x1) (x,y) is a point on the line; m=slope find two points on the line, use the slope formula to find the slope. slope formula: y2-y1 / x2-x1 the product is your slope (m). choose one of the points to use in your equation, and simply plug in the numbers. EXAMPLE: points: (-2,0) (0,4) 4-0 / 0+2 m=4/2 now choose one of the points, and plug-in your numbers. y-y1=m(x-x1) i'll choose (0,4) y-4=4/2(x-0) which would simplify to: y-4=4/2x hope you understand...have fun -Joel
