The general equation or standard equation of a straight line is:
Where and are constants and either or .
Convert the standard equation of line into the slope point form
If the standard form of the line passes through the point , then this point must satisfy the standard equation, i.e.
Comparing the equation with the slope intercept form, the slope is . The slope point form of the line is .
Now we put the values of and in the slope point form .
This is the equation of a line in point-slope form transferred from its general form.
