# Writing Linear Equations in Standard Form

Students learn the definition of standard form, which is Ax + By = C form, where A, B, and C are integers, and A must be positive. For example, 2x - 5y = 10 is in standard form. Students also learn to write the equation of a line in standard form, given the equation of the line in slope-intercept form, the slope and y-intercept of the line, or the graph of the line.
