# How do you write the point slope form of an equation for a lint that passes through (3,8) with m=2?

See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The point-slope formula states: $\left(y - \textcolor{red}{{y}_{1}}\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{m} \left(x - \textcolor{red}{{x}_{1}}\right)$

Where $\textcolor{b l u e}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{red}{\left(\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)\right)}$ is a point the line passes through.

Substituting the slope and values of the point from the problem gives:

$\left(y - \textcolor{red}{8}\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{2} \left(x - \textcolor{red}{3}\right)$
