The "form" only refers to how the equation of the line is written. It has no effect on what the line looks like when the equation is graphed. To graph a linear equation, no matter what form it's written in: -- Pick a number for 'x'. Use the equation to calculate 'y'. Graph the point. -- Pick another 'x'. Use the equation to calculate the new 'y'. Graph the point. -- Draw a straight line between the two points, and as much farther as you want to in either or both directions.
