The general equation or standard equation of a straight line is given by

Where

and

are any constants and also either

or

.

Convert the standard equation of line

into the slope point form

If the standard form of line is passes through the point

, then this point must satisfy the standard equation i.e.

Comparing the equation with slope intercept form, the slope is

. The slope point form of line is

. Now putting the values of

and

in the slope point form

.

Which is the equation of line in point-slope form transferred from its general form.
