no, it does not matter. because some folks get use to standard forms, they are more comfortable with the last form you wrote, but in the end, machts nichts.

I have met a few high school teachers who make a big deal over it, and the use of x as the variable, (never h, never c, only x and y). When you encounter these individuals, bite your tongue, and bear with it.
