# How do you write Y=2x+4 in standard form?

May 30, 2017

#### Explanation:

Standard form for linear equations is the basic equation to help with graphing. It is as follows:

$y = m x + b$

Where $y$ is being solved for,
$x$ is the point that is being plugged in
$m$ is the slope of the equation,
and $b$ is the y-intercept, the point where the equation crosses the y-axis, and the value of $x$ is 0

From the equation given, we can analyze it as so:

$y = 2 x + 4$

$y$ is being solved for
$x$ = the coordinate being plugged in
$m = 2$, a.k.a. the slope
$b = 4$, which is the y-intercept
