- 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#(1,1)#

And the Slope#m# is given as#1/4#

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:

Multiplying both sides with 4, we get:

We get the equation of the line as :

The graph will look like this:

graph{y=(1/4)*x+3/4 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
