on Point Slope to Standard Form

**Example**

of Converting from Point Slope to Standard Form

Distribute 'm' or the slope to x −x_{1}

Move y_{1} to the other side by adding its opposite to both sides of the equation and simplify

"Move" the x term to the other side by adding its opposite to both sides
