  • Slope-Intercept Form: Formula, Derivation, & Examples

    The slope-intercept form is the most common way to represent a straight-line equation. This form is very helpful for determining the equation of a line when the slope of a straight line and the y-intercept point (The point at the y-coordinate where the straight line cuts the y-axis) are known. A straight-line equation is an equation that is satisfied by each point of the line. In algebra, the equation of a line can be expressed in many different forms and each of them is useful in its own way. Some useful forms of the equation of a line are: Point-slope form Intercept form Slope-intercept form Two-point form In this article,…
