## Should 3 be spelled out?

It is generally best to write out numbers from zero to one hundred in nontechnical writing. In scientific and technical writing, the prevailing style is to write out numbers under ten.

**What are the 3 rules for writing numbers in standard form?**

Small numbers can also be written in standard form. However, instead of the index being positive (in the above example, the index was 3), it will be negative. The rules when writing a number in standard form is that first you write down a number between 1 and 10, then you write × 10(to the power of a number).

**What does Standard Form tell you?**

The standard form of a line is just another way of writing the equation of a line. It gives all of the same information as the slope-intercept form that we learned about on Day 5 just written differently. Recall that the slope-intercept form of a line is: y = mx + b.

### How do you put Slope Intercept into standard form?

The standard form of such an equation is Ax + By + C = 0 or Ax + By = C. When you rearrange this equation to get y by itself on the left side, it takes the form y = mx +b. This is called slope intercept form because m is equal to the slope of the line, and b is the value of y when x = 0, which makes it the y-intercept.

**What is the difference between slope intercept form and standard form?**

What is the difference between slope intercept and standard form? Slope intercept form: y = mx + b In this equation, m is the slope(rise over run) b is the y-intercept. This is very handy for graphing. Standard form: ax + by = c, where a, b, and c are integers.
