- The
**Point-Slope form**of the Equation of a Straight Line is:

- Here, we have been given the coordinates
#(h,k)# of 1 point on that line as#(4,1)#

And the Slope#m# is given as#-4#

Substituting the values of h, k and m in the Point-Slope form, we get

The above will be the Equation of the Line in **Point-Slope form** .

The graph will look like this:

graph{y=-4x+17 [-12.66, 12.65, -6.33, 6.33]}
