## EmmaH 3 years ago what is standard form?

1. 03453660

Standard form is the way you write any number normally. Like writing five thousand and six in stand form would be 5006

2. philo1234

Standard form is a way to write an equation for a graph. Standard form: ax+by+c=0, where a is always positive and the coefficients are integers (that is they are not fractions or decimals)

3. philo1234

Hold on are you talking about standard form as in writing an equation of a line in standard form or writing a number in standard form?

4. breja

The "Standard Form" for writing down a polynomial is to put the terms with the highest degree first (like the "2" in x2 if there is one variable).

5. EmmaH

well thlve this?? Write the equation y - 2 = 4(x + 5) in standard form

6. AriPotta

standard form is Ax + By = C. A cannot be a fraction or a negative number

7. EmmaH

um what?

8. AriPotta

i gotta walk my dog. i'll explain when i get back!

9. CliffSedge

It depends on what you want to write the standard form of.

10. EmmaH

Write the equation y - 2 = 4(x + 5) in standard form

11. CliffSedge

Each type of number (numerical expression) or algebraic expression, or equation has its own established 'standard' for how it is written.

12. EmmaH

ok but what do i do?? @( confused

13. CliffSedge

That is a linear equation. The standard form for linear equations is Ax+By=C, where A,B, and C are integers.

14. CliffSedge

Simplify both sides, the get all your x's and y's on one side and all the constants on the other.

15. EmmaH

is x and y changed to a nad b?

16. philo1234

Correction: General Form: ax+by+c=0 Standard Form: ax+by=c Slope-intercept form: y=mx+b

17. EmmaH

ok so oh dear i dont get it...

18. AriPotta

you're basically moving the x to the left side

19. AriPotta

but you have to make sure that the coefficient of x isn't a fraction or negative number

20. EmmaH

4x=y-22?

21. AriPotta

you have to keep y on the left side

22. AriPotta

it's Ax + By = C

23. AriPotta

so x and y are on the left

24. EmmaH

4x - y = -22 right?

25. AriPotta

yup. good job :)

26. EmmaH

YAY thank you God bless

27. AriPotta

lol no problem

28. EmmaH

i got it right on the quiz thanks for heling me understand it!
