Standard Form of a Linear Equation
This video clip describes how lines expressed in the standard form of a linear equation are commonly seen, especially when looking at and writing systems of linear equations. The standard form of a linear equation puts the x and y terms on the left hand side of the equation, and makes the coefficient of the x-term positive. While standard form is commonly, we sometimes rewrite a line in slope-intercept form in order to graph it. (1:13)

"Genesee Had Railroads": Kenneth Platt Recalls the Importance of the Railroad to Late Nineteenth-Cen
The penetration of the railroads into the West in the late nineteenth century had a profound impact on local economies.
