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.

To find the equation of a line
this formula is used:

equation of a line
Both x and y remain variables.
The slope, m, will be a real number
as well as .
Recall the formula for a slope.

 Step 1: Find the slope of the line.
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.
