The general from of the equation of a line is an equation where all the terms are collected to the left side of the equation. The general form of an equation is written as Ax + By + C = 0, where A, B, and C are almost always expressed as integers, and A is usually positive.

This week I learned how to convert equations from slope y-intercept form, y= mx + b to general form Ax + Bx + C= 0, where A, B, and C are integers. To convert equations from and to these forms I learned to take the following steps…
