Put the items in order below to take a point and a slope and turn it into a slope-intercept form equation.

- Get y alone but adding or subtracting the number on the left side
- Distribute the slope over the parentheses
- Rearrange so the equation looks like "y=mx + b"
- Input m and (x₁,y₂) into the point-slope equation. Covert any double negative signs to positives
