If the value of y in the general form equation is isolated, the slope–intercept form of the line is obtained:
The coefficient of x is the slope, which is denoted as m.
The independent term is the y-intercept which is denoted as b.
Calculate the equation (in slope–intercept form) of the line that passes through Point A = (1,5) and has a slope m = −2.
