**Example**: Find the equation of the line passing through (2, 3) with slope

*m*= 1/2.

**Step 1**: Use

*y*=

*mx*+

*b*and find

*m*.

**Step 2**: Use the given point to find

*b*.

**Step 3**: Put it all together using

*y*=

*mx*+

*b*.

Alternatively, you can use point-slope form to answer the same question.

Substitute (2, 3) and slope

*m*= 1/2 into the formula as follows:

Either method is valid and the answer is the equation.
