    article for 'equation form'


    I read the following sentence in the media. I don't understand why there is no article before 'equation form'. Also refer to the link to one of my previous questions, where I was told that an article is required in such a situation. Please help me understand how these two sentences are different.

    'The mathematics are presented here for those who prefer to think in equation form.'
