Convert the following equation from point slope to slope intercept form.

In other words, if the equation is rewritten to look like `y = mx + b`

, what are the values of `m`

and `b`

?

`y - `

`y1` = `m`(x - `x1`)

`y = \space`

`m``\space \cdot x + \space`

`b`

Distribute the

in the `m`

term on the right.`m`(x - `x1`)

`y - `

`y1` = \color{`BLUE`}{`expr([ "*", m, "x" ])` - `var1`}

Isolate the y term on the left by
subtracting

from both sides.
adding `-y1`

to both sides.
`y1`

`y = `

`expr([ "*", m, "x" ])` - `var1` + `y1`

Combine the constant terms on the right.

`y = `

`expr([ "*", m, "x" ])` + `b`

The equation is now in slope-intercept form, with a slope of

and a y-intercept of `m`

.`b`
