## What is the example of general form?

General form of a line The general form ax+by+c=0 is one of the many different forms you can write linear functions in. Other ones include the slope intercept form y=mx+b or slope-point form. We can convert the linear function among different forms.

**What is the general form of a function?**

The general form for such functions is P(x) = a0 + a1x + a2x2+⋯+ anxn, where the coefficients (a0, a1, a2,…, an) are given, x can be any real number, and all the powers of x are counting numbers (1, 2, 3,…).

### What are the three forms of equations?

There are three major forms of linear equations: point-slope form, standard form, and slope-intercept form. We review all three in this article.

**What is general and standard form?**

The standard form and the general form are equivalent methods of describing the same function. The general form of a quadratic function is f(x)=ax2+bx+c where a, b, and c are real numbers and a≠0. The standard form of a quadratic function is f(x)=a(x−h)2+k. The vertex (h,k) is located at h=–b2a,k=f(h)=f(−b2a).

## How do you rewrite an equation in general form?

To write an equation in general linear form, given a graph of the equation, first find the x-intercept and the y-intercept — these will be of the form (a, 0) and (0, b). bx + ay = ab. This equation is linear and the two intercept points satisfy it, therefore it represents the line.

**How to find general form?**

(x 2 – x 1) and reduce the resulting fraction to the simplest form.

### How do you graph an equation in standard form?

The standard form of a linear equation puts the x and y terms on the left hand side of the equation, and makes the coefficient of the x-term positive. While standard form is commonly, we sometimes rewrite a line in slope-intercept form in order to graph it. The standard form of a linear equation looks like ax+by=c.

**Which is the correct form for a linear equation?**

The standard form of a linear equation is written in the form Ax + By = C. A, B, & C are all real numbers. Any equation can be transformed into this form by adding or subtracting like terms on both sides of the equation. Example: Equation: 9 + 9x = 11y. Subtract 9 from both sides: 9 – 9 + 9x = 11y – 9.
