Unformatted text preview: x to both sides and adding 20 to both sides. Make sure that A is a positive number. x + 5 y = 17 A nonvertical line written in standard form is Ax + By = C , with B ≠ 0. Solve this equation for y . The value becomes the slope of the line, and becomes thev y-intercept value. If is replaced with m and is replaced with b , the equation becomes y = mx + b . This is known as the slope-intercept form of a nonvertical line....
