Description:

There are three basic forms of the line equation:

1.  General  Equation:    Ax + By + C = 0  where A,B, and C are constants for which A and B are not both equal to zero.

2.  Point - Slope Equation:     (y - y1) = m(x - x1)  where x1, y1, and m are constants; (x1,y1) is a point on the line and m is the slope.

3.  Slope-Intercept Equation:  y = mx + b  where m and b are constants and b is the y-intercept.
