## Point Slope Form Tutorial

##### Point Slope Form Definition

Point slope form is also called as point - gradient form. Point Slope Form is used to generate the Equation of a straight line passing through a given point with a slope.

##### Point slope form Example

Find the equation of the line that passes through (-3, 2) with slope of 2.
x_{1} = -3, y_{1} = 2 and slope m = 2.
Substitute in the formula as
y - y_{1} = m(x- x_{1}).
y - (2) = 2(x - (-3))
y - 2 = 2(x + 3)
y - 2 = 2x + 6
Equation = 2x + 6 -y + 2
Equation of the Line = 2x -y + 8
The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Point slope form manually.
