This video explains how to convert functions from slope-intercept form, and point-slope form, to the standard form of the equation of a line.
The standard form of a line is written as:
where A, B, and C, are constants.
An example would be:
Would be written as:
The standard form of a line is
Let’s solve to make this look like this
Let’s get all the terms on one side first by subtracting on both sides
It looks like it but we want the term to be positive. So we divide both sides by
Let’s solve another one
Let’s bring all the variables to one side by subtracting on both sides.
Then bring all the constant on one side by subtracting
Let’s just rewrite it
Just to recap it’s just .
