Standard form of a line looks like Ax + By = C, where A, B and C are constants. If you are presented with two points and asked to write the equation for the line containing them in standard form, start by finding the slope, then writing the equation in point-slope form, and then getting the x and y terms on the same side of the equals sign. Standard form is often graphed by finding the x and y intercepts and connecting them- let x = 0 to find the y-intercept, and let y = 0 to find the x-intercept.
