Converting Slope-Intercept Form to Standard Form - Algebra I
In this video, you will learn how to convert slope-intercept form equations to standard form equations. A slope-intercept form equation is any linear equation in the form of y=mx+b, in which the m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. In order to convert a slope-intercept form equation to a standard form equation, it's important to know that the standard form of any linear equation is ax+by=c, in which a and b are coefficients and c is the constant. The first step is to identify the x and y values. In slope-intercept form, the y is on the left hand side of the equation, whereas the x is on the right hand side. In standard form, the x and y values must be on the left hand side, so you will subtract the x value in y=mx+b onto the left hand side. Next, you must rearrange terms to get them into ax+by=c form.
