Mathematics has different type of equations. Point-slope is the general form y-y₁=m(x-x₁) for linear equations. It emphasizes the slope of the line and a point on the line that is not the y-intercept. Do you believe you know enough about these equations? Give the easy quiz below a try and find out.
