# 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:**

- Enter the coordinates of the point on the line in the form (x, y).
- Enter the slope of the line in the form m.
- Click the “Calculate” button or equivalent option.
- 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:**

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