<p class="problem">Using the following values, create an equation in point slope form. In other words, given the values below, for a formula that looks like <code>(y - y_{1}) = m(x - x_{1})</code>, what are the values of <code>x_{1}</code>, <code>y_{1}</code>, and <code>m</code>?</p>
<p><code>x_{1}=\color{#b22222}{<var>X1</var>},\quad f(x_{1})=\color{#b22222}{<var>Y1</var>}.</code><br /><code>x_{2}=\color{#4169E1}{<var>X2</var>},\quad f(x_{2})\text{ } = \color{#4169E1}{<var>Y2</var>}.</code> </p>

<p><code>f(x)</code> is just a fancy term for <code>y</code>. So one point is <code>(\color{#b22222}{<var>X1</var>}, \color{#b22222}{<var>Y1</var>})</code>.</p>
<p>The formula to find the slope is: <code>m = (y_{1} - y_{2}) / (x_{1} - x_{2})</code>.</p>

<p>The y-intercept is the value of <code>y</code> when <code>x = 0</code>, so it defines a point you can use:<code>\quad(\color{#b22222}{<var>X1</var>}, \color{#b22222}{<var>Y1</var>})</code>.</p>
<p>An equation in point slope form looks like: <code>(y - y_{1}) = m(x - x_{1})</code> </p>

<p> Thus, the solution in point slope form can be written as:<br /><code>(y - \color{#b22222}{<var>Y1</var>}) = \color{#68228B}{<var>fractionReduce(Y1 - Y2, X1 - X2)</var>}(x - \color{#b22222}{<var>X1</var>})</code></p>
