# Finding the Equation of a Line, Given the Slope and a Point

This video explains how to find the equation of a line, given a point and the slope of the line.

There are two ways of solving this.

One way is using the slope-intercept formula, y = mx + b

And the other way is by using the point-slope formula, $y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)$
