# Standard Form of a Linear Equation

**Formula:** `Ax + B = C`

Where:

`A, B,`

and`C`

are constants.`x`

is the variable.

The standard form of a linear equation is an equation of a straight line where `A`

, `B`

, and `C`

are integers, and `A`

should be a non-negative integer. This form is useful for analyzing linear equations since it is closely aligned with the row operations of matrix methods for solving systems of linear equations, and with methods for analyzing equations within coordinate systems. In practice, the standard form is used to simplify representing linear equations in different areas, such as Physics and Economics.
