Point Slope Form:

Slope Intercept Form:

#### Explanation:

The point-slope form formula is

#y-y_1 = "slope" * (x-x_1)# .

Here

Plug in those values, along with the slope, and you have an equation in point-slope form. Looking at this equation, you are able to distribute the

You'll end up with

#y=-2x+8#

which is written in slope intercept form

#y=mx+b#

Here
