## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

I would prefer to graph an equation of the form $y=mx+b$ because it is easier and I can graph faster. (Refer to the explanation below for more details.)
I would prefer to graph an equation of the form $y=mx+b$ because it is easier to do than graphing an equation of the form $Ax+By=C$. All I have to do is plot the y-intercept, use the slope (rise over run) to plot one or two more points, then connect the points using a line. This is easier and faster than graphing an equation of the form $Ax+By=C$, which requires solving for the x and y-intercepts.
