The general formula for slope-intercept form is , where represents the slope of the line, and represents the -value of the line’s -intercept.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation makes it easier for us to identify how steep a line is and where it crosses the -axis.

✨ Drag the points on the graph to see how they affect the equation of the line! ✨

When we're given , we first need to find the slope. Then, we can use the slope and one of the given points to solve for the -value of the -intercept and write the equation in slope-intercept form.

### What is Standard Form?

The general formula for the standard form of a linear equation is , where , , and are all integers.

We can go from standard form to slope-intercept form by isolating and simplifying:

### What is Point-Slope Form?

The general formula for the point-slope form of a linear equation is , where represents the slope of a line that contains the point (, ).

We can go from point-slope form to slope-intercept form by isolating and simplifying:

KEY STEPS

## How to Find the Slope-Intercept Form of a Line

Find the slope-intercept form of a line using

### Step 1. Solve for the slope ().

Remember, the slope is equal to the change in divided by the change in (rise over run).

### Step 2. Solve for the -value of the -intercept ().

Plug the slope and the and of one of the given points into , then solve for .

### Step 3. Replace and with their values in the formula.
