What is the General Form Linear Equation? Step 1: Calculate the slope (m) from the coordinates (y 2 - y 1) / (x 2 - x 1 ). Then reduce the resulting fraction to Step 2: From the slope, calculate

The General Form of the equation of a straight line is: Ax + By + C = 0. A or B can be zero, but not both at the same time. The General Form is not always the most useful form, and you may prefer to use: The Slope-Intercept Form of the
