If I remember it properly pointslope for is in terms of x= and slopeintercept form is in terms of y=

Begin by writing an equation in point slope form: (y  y1) = m(x  x1). Then manipulate it until you have the form y = mx + b. Then, go a step further and manipulate it until you have the form ax + by = c For example, suppose you're given the point (x,y) = (2,5) and the slope m = 3. Rewriting this in point slope form produces: (y  2) = 3( x 5) . To rewrite this equation in slopeintercept form, manipulate the equation as follows: (y  2) = 3(x  5) y  2 = 3x  15 y = 3x  15 + 2 y = 3x  13 This last form, y = 3x  13 is the slopeintercept form y = mx + b. Finally, to put this equation in standard form ax + by = c, manipulate the equation as follows: y = 3x  13 13 = 3x  y 13 = 3x  1y 3x + (1)y = 13 The last form, 3x + (1)y = 13 is the standard form ax + by = c.
