To write the point-slope form of a line when given a slope and a point, use the formula `y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)`. Here, `m` represents the slope, and `(x_1, y_1)` is the point given. For example, if the slope ‘`m`’ is `2` and the point is `(3, 4)`, you substitute these values into the formula: `y - 4 = 2(x - 3)`. This equation shows how the line relates to the given point and slope, making it clear how the line moves through that specific point with the specified slope.
