# Chapter 3 - Section 3.5 - The Point-Slope Form of the Equation of a Line - Exercise Set: 1

#### Answer

y-5=3(x-2) y=3x-1

#### Work Step by Step

y-y$_1$=m(x-x$_1$) y-5=3(x-2) This is point slope form. Isolate y to find slope-intercept form. y-5=3(x)-3(2) y-5=3x-6 y-5+5=3x-6+5 y=3x-1 This is slope-intercept form.
