#### What Type of Equation?

Point Slope or Slope Intercept ?

There are a few different ways to write the equation of line .

#### Slope Intercept Form

The first half of this page will focus on writing the equation in slope intercept form like example 1 below.

#### Point Slope Form

However, if you are comfortable using the point slope form of a line, then skip to the second part of this page because writing the equation from 2 points is easier with point slope form.

#### Which Form is better?

Point Slope Form is better

Point slope form requires fewer steps and fewer calculations overall. This page will explore both approaches. You can click here to see a side by side comparison of the 2 forms.
