Point slope form of a line is a way to write a linear equation using any point on the line and the slope of the line. It takes the form y = y1 + m(x - x1), where (x1, y1) is any point on the line, and m is the slope of the line. An advantage of the point slope form is that it can be written given any point on a line and the slope of the line. To convert a linear equation from point slope form to slope intercept form, simplify the right side of the equation.
