Point Slope Formula. Mostly used to graph a line.
M represents slope and B is the Y-Intercept of the line.
Can be directly entered into graphing calculators to graph the according line, or graphed by first graphing the Y-Intercept (0,b), and following the slope from there.
y=mx+b
y=1x+2
Y-intercept is 2
Slope is 1
Graphs a positive line
