Here is an example of how to find the equation of a line using the point-slope formula.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic.

Basic steps to follow:

1. First you will need at least the slope and one point on the line; if you have only two points find the slope and use one of the points
2. Plug in the point (x, y) and the slope m into the formula
3. Simplify the formula and place the equation into y = mx + b form
