The vast majority of motherboards are ATX.

Anyway, how to tell.
Lets assume the motherboard is sitting flat on a table and you are looking at it with the rear IO panel near you and the processor in a direct line away from you with the processor facing up. The expansion slots of an ATX board fan out to the right and BTX to the left.
