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.
