what grade are you all in? I mean, anyone with a 9th grade education could pass the GED with flying colors.
in a line, standard form is slope-intercept form:
Y, is the y corrdinate, or the coordinate corresponding to the line going up and down.
X, is the x coordinate, corresponding to points going to the left and right.
M, is the slope, which is ALWAYS a form of a fraction (if the slope is 2, convert it to 2/1, etc.)
B, is the Y coordinate for when X=0.
For example, y=4x-6.
y, is the variable that represents any Y coordinate (you can''t just put any y and x coordinate in for Y and X, lines only go through certain points)
M, is, in this case, 4. Which is the slope. First convert this to 4/1. What this means is that from the point (0,-6), the line will go UP by four on the Y-axis and RIGHT by 1 on the X-axis. That means that the next point from (0,-6) is (0+1, -6+4), which equals (1, -2).
I hope that helps.
