Point-slope form of a line is one method to write the equation of a line. Start with the slope equation, which is basically the difference between two points, and then rearrange the terms to obtain the point-slope form of a line. The point-slope form of a line provides a formula that is useful in finding the slope of a line from an equation and a point the line passes through.
