are you asking the solution of the line (when y equals 0) or are you asking for us to put the equation in standard/y-intercept/point-slope form?Originally Posted by 905
One standard way of writing a multinomial (the "most" standard I've seen, if there is such a thing) is to write the terms of highest degree first down to the lowest degree such that the expression equals zero. For example:Originally Posted by Quick
In the case for a linear equation the form simply becomes:
I'll admit I don't usually see this form for a line, but considering the expression as a multinomial it would be standard.
