**Example:** Find the equation of a line in slope intercept form given the slope of the line is 7 and the line passes through the point

**Solution:**

Use the point-slope formula of the line to start building the line. m represents the slope of the line and is a point on the line.

**Point-slope formula:**

and

Substitute the values into the formula.

Since the instructions ask to write the equation in slope intercept form we will simplify and write the equation with y by itself on one side.

The equation of a line in slope intercept form with a slope of 7 and passing through the point is .
