Slope-Intercept Form Calculator
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:
