Overview of different forms of a line's equation
There are many different ways that you can express the equation of a line. There is the slope intercept form , point slope form and also this page's topic. Each one expresses the equation of a line, and each one has its own pros and cons. For instance, point slope form makes it easy to find the line's equation when you only know the slope and a single point on the line. Standard form also has some distinct uses, but more on that later.
Definition of Standard form Equation
The Standard Form equation of a line has the following formula: $ Ax + By = C \\ A \ne 0 \\ b \ne 0 $
Example and Non Example Equations
|Examples of Standard Form Equations||Non-Examples|
|3x + 5y = 3||2y = 4x +2|
|2x − y =6||x = 6 − y|
|-2x + y = 7||y = 2x + 7|
