Right now your equation is in what is called the slope-intercept form y=mx+b where m is the slop and b is the y intercept.

You job is to put it in the for Ax+By=C where A is a positive whole number and B and C are integers. We look at these 2 forms and we ask ourselves what is the difference between slope intercept and standard? The answer is that the variable are on opposite sides of the equation on slope intercept form and they are on the same side on standard. To fix this we simply and or subtract the x term on both sides of the equation and/or multiply by -1.

For this problem in particular we have y=-2x+8, in order to put it in standard form we add 2x to both sides of the equation, doing so gives us 2x+y=8. Since 2 is positive we are done.
