Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0point slope form; but yes, that is a good way to determing the slope intercept form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no; there is only one way to use the point slope form of a line. There are many ways describe the equation of a line. .... but only one way to describe it in point slope form....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the y intercept form and the point slope formula u can do it both ways

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"Choose the pointslope form of the equation": y  y1 = m(xx1) ; where point is P(x1,y1). Now if you want to do this the long way..... then yes, try to fight thru the slopeintercept form to get to it. By the way, I have never really found a good use for the pointslope form, unless we are looking for the equation of a tangent line to the curve, then its pretty handy :)
