- The
**Point-Slope form**of the Equation of a Straight Line is:

- Here, we have been given the coordinates
#(h,k)# of 1 point on that line as#(4,1)#

And the Slope#m# is given as#3#

Substituting the values of h, k and m in the Point-Slope form, we get

The above will be the Equation of the Line in Point-Slope form.

- If we need it in the Slope Intercept Form, we need to follow these steps:

We get the equation of the line as :

The graph will look like this:
