# Y=4-2/3x in standard form?

I know standard form is ax+by=c but I'm confused with the equation->

y=4-2/3x

It's quite simple. Look at the form, x and y are on the same side, and c is the constant. So you want x and y to be on the left, since the constant, 4, is already on the right. In order to do that, you need to add 2/3x to both sides, since the 2/3 is negative to begin with. Your final answer will be 2/3x+y=4.

Add 2/3 x to the other side to get

2/3x+y=4 a can not be a ratio or negative so multiply whole equation by 3 to get

ax+by=c

-2/3x -y = -4

or 2/3x + y = 4

in accordance to wikipedia, prevalent style for a line is right here: Ax + with the aid of = C So we want x and y to be on the comparable area, and for all coefficients to be integers. y = (2/3)x - 4 y - (2/3)x = -4 //subtract (2/3)x from the two facets 3y - 2x = -12 //multiply the two facets with the aid of three
