# Point slope form calculator

To use a point-slope form calculator, you’ll need to have the coordinates of a point on a line and the slope of the line. Here are the steps to use a point-slope form calculator:

1. Enter the coordinates of the point on the line in the form (x, y).
2. Enter the slope of the line in the form m.
3. Click the “Calculate” button or equivalent option.
4. The point-slope form of the line will be displayed in the form y – y1 = m(x – x1), where (x1, y1) are the coordinates of the given point and m is the given slope.

Alternatively, you can calculate the point-slope form of a line manually using the following formula:

y – y1 = m(x – x1)

where (x1, y1) is the point on the line, and m is the slope of the line.

Here’s an example to illustrate how to use a point-slope form calculator:

Suppose you have a line with a slope of 2 passing through the point (3, 5).

To find the point-slope form of this line, you would follow these steps:

1. Enter the coordinates of the point on the line: (3, 5).
2. Enter the slope of the line: 2.
3. Click the “Calculate” button or equivalent option.
4. The point-slope form of the line will be displayed: y – 5 = 2(x – 3).
