point-slope form: \[y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})\]
If were using point slope form(PSF) then were going to substitute the values of the ordered pairs into our equation. So knowing that our ordered pairs go in the order (x,y) *alphabetical order* then what values would we substitute in for y sub one and x sub one.
Are those the letters we need to solve?

Well were trying to isolate y. but for now we need to know where everything goes before we start solving.
Oh then I'm not sure what would x sub 1 and y sub 1 equal to
Your ordered pair is (4,2) and we know that the ordered pair follows (x,y) so you're literally just taking the y and x value and plugging them in for your y1 and x1 values. or in other words y sub 1 and x sub 1.
Then what would we substitute in for the x and y values in the equation?
4,2
I thought you said we substitute those numbers in for x sub 1 and y sub 1
Yes!
y - (y sub one) = m(x - *x sub one*) Look at the PSF equation again.
Ok so I'm substituting the coordinates and this is what I understand:\[2-(2)=m(4-4)\]
Is that right?
No you only do it for y1 and x1, you don't substitute it in for ALL the variables.
Its going to look like y - 2 = m(x - 4) Now we have to substitute in the slope which is the value for m.
What does it tell you that the slope(m) is?
It's 0.
So how do I solve for both x and y?
Exactly so what would our equation look like now?
It would look like y - 2 = 0(x - 4)
Right?
@Teddyiswatshecallsme r u there?
Yes I am! Sorry.
Yes it would look like that you are correct! Now do you know about the distributive property of multiplication?
What is that again?
he distributive property lets you multiply a sum by multiplying each addend separately and then add the products.
So how would you use that when applying to the formula?
SO basically you're going to DISTRIBUTE the 0 to the x and to the 4 and it becomes x because you're just distributing nothing
Oh like that! Sorry! It's harder to understand some of the terms.
Yeah its a bit confusing sometimes so it because y - 2 = x - 4
Wouldn't the 4 become a 0 when you are distributing?
Now we need to do some order of operations to get that -2 over to the right side of the equation.
Well no. Because its like if i was giving out nothing. If i give you nothing and you have 4 dollars to begin with how many dollars are you left with?
Still 4 dollars. But I thought anything multiplied with 0 will become 0.
Aren't you multiplying in this case?
Hmmm. Hold on. I need to do a bit of research. cx
Alright
Do you have multiple choice options?
I believe you are correct. So that would end up being, y - 2 = x So what do you need to do next?
No I don't unfortunately. :/
Put the -2 on the other side of the equal sign
So the answer would be y = x + 2.
Yes!
You are correct!
Thanks for your help!
You're welcome! :D Thanks for your cooperation.
Your welcome!
