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

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)

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?

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).

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

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

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