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:

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.
