# How do you write the equation of a line in slope intercept, point slope and standard form given Point: (-5, 4) Slope: m = 2?

##### 1 Answer

Slope intercept:

Point-slope:

Standard form:

#### Explanation:

Slope intercept equation is

The point-slope is given as

The standard form of an equation is

Now, for slope intercept, substitute all the values you have been given and solve for

Then substitute only

Now for the point-slope (which is just another method of finding the equation of the slope), you find that there's

So, substitute the values of

As you can see, both methods give the same results by substitution.

For the standard form, you use the format of the equation of the point-slope but rearrange it so that the

This is almost in the format of

Which can also be solved by taking the results from one of the other equations and rearranged to follow the format of
