Slope (m) of a non-vertical line passing through the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by m = \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}, x_1 \neq x_2

If a line makes an angle α with the positive direction of x-axis, then the slope of the line is given by m = tan α, α ≠ 90°

Slope of horizontal line is zero and slope of vertical line is undefined.

An acute angle (say θ) between lines L1 and L2  with slopes m1 and m2 is given by tan {\theta} = \left| \frac{m_2-m_1}{1+m_1 m_2} \right| , 1+m_1 m_2 \neq 0

Two lines are parallel if and only if their slopes are equal.

Two lines are perpendicular if and only if product of their slopes is –1.

Three points A, B and C are collinear, if and only if slope of AB = slope of BC.

Equation of the horizontal line having distance a from the x-axis is either y = a or y = – a.

Equation of the vertical line having distance b from the y-axis is either x = b or x = – b.

The point (x, y) lies on the line with slope m and through the fixed point (x0, y0), if and only if its coordinates satisfy the equation y - y_0 = m (x - x_0)

Equation of the line passing through the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by y-y_1 = \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} (x-x_1)

The point (x, y) on the line with slope m and y-intercept c lies on the line if and only if y = mx + c.

If a line with slope m makes x-intercept d. Then equation of the line is y = m (x – d).

Equation of a line making intercepts a and b on the x-and y-axis, respectively, is \frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1

The equation of the line having normal distance from origin p and angle between normal and the positive x-axis ω is given by x cos ω + y sin ω = p .

Any equation of the form Ax + By + C = 0, with A and B are not zero, simultaneously, is called the general linear equation or general equation of a line.

The perpendicular distance (d) of a line Ax + By+ C = 0 from a point (x1, y1) is given by d = \frac{|A x_1 + B y_1 + C|}{\sqrt{A^2 + B^2}}

Distance between the parallel lines Ax + By + C1 = 0 and Ax + By + C2 = 0, is given by d = \frac{| C_1 - C_2 |}{\sqrt{A^2 + B^2 }}
