**Polynomial Equation**

This question was posted as a question about "Polynomials in Standard Form".

This equation is not a polynomial , but we can think of it as a polynomial equation.

Standard form for a polynomial equation has the polynomial on the left and

For this equation, we write

**Equation of a Line** (Linear equation in two variables.)

We can also think of this as an equation in two variables whose graph is a straight line. (It it the vertical line through the point

Standard form for the equation of a line is

Because we usually do not write coefficients of

If we want to make it more explicit, we could write:
