The standard form for the equation of a line is Ax + By = C. A, B and C are real numbers and, x and y are
variables. |
this formula is used: Both x and y remain variables. The slope, m, will be a real number as well as .Recall the formula for a slope. |

Step 2: Substitute values into the formula. Step 3: Use the distributive property. Step 4: Use the addition property of equality to combine the constants, and to place x and its coefficient across the equal sign. Step 5: Multiply by the denominator to create integer coefficients. |
