What does it take to be a line in standard form?
Ax + By = C
Clear the fractions and A has to be positive!
2x + 5y = -7
This form is graph-friendly. All you have to do is graph the y-intercept (set x equal to zero) and then count the slope on the graph.
y = mx + b
m is the slope and b is the intercept
Point - Slope Formula
If you know one point and the slope of a line, you can use the point-slope formula to write an equation for that line.
