# Find Slope Given Point-Slope Form Worksheet

## 6 problems

To find the slope from the point-slope form of a linear equation, we can use the following equation.

y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)

Within this formula:

• On the line, (x_1, y_1) is a point.
• The line's slope is m.

Use these worksheets to enhance your computation skills.

Example: Find the slope of the following equation of line. y - 5 =-2(x - 9)

## Solved Example

Q. Find the slope of the line $y + 3 = -\frac{1}{18}(x + 6)$.$\newline$
Solution:
1. Identify Point-Slope Form: The equation is already in point-slope form, which is $y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)$, where $m$ is the slope.
2. Find Slope: Now, let's identify the slope from the equation $y + 3 = -\frac{1}{18}(x + 6)$.
3. Final Answer: If we compare the given equation with point-slope form, we get the value of $m$. $\newline$$m=-\frac{1}{18}$$\newline$So, the slope is $-\frac{1}{18}$.
