How do you convert a kekule structure from Lewis Diagram form to Condensed and Line-angle structure?

According to Kekule, six carbon atoms of benzene are linked to each other by alternate single and double covalent bonds to form a hexagonal ring. Lewis Diagrams is the easiest way to determine how the electrons are shared in a covalent molecule is to draw a Lewis diagram also called an electron dot diagram for the molecule. 

The condensed formula is a system of writing organic structures in a line of text as ethanol is CH3CH2OH with no vertical or horizontal bonds. Line structure is derived from condensed structure showing no atoms of elements H and C: bonds between C atoms are shown as lines, each vertice and end of the line structure represent C atoms and the unfilled valencies are assumed to be filled up by H.
