    Slope intercept is the equation, slope is rise over run

    Technically, no they're not the same. Would you care to know why?

    Lol okay. They have different formulas, basically. slope-intercept form is where y = mx + b point-slope form is where \[y- y _{1}= m(x - x _{1})\] you are right that they end in slope-intercept, but most often, most linear equations do :) so i hope this helps >.<
