The following equations all have a similarity:

The similarity is that they all have expressions like (x- 6) or (13x + 11), which are often either translations or factors. Situations such as this occur with:

– Point-slope form of the equation of a line

– Vertex form of the equation of a quadratic

– Horizontal or vertical translation of any function

– Factors of a polynomial

– “Bounce point” of an absolute value function
