helppppp me please i really need help with rewrite the following in standard form cause im really not good at it at all what so ever so please help me please and thank you
Your equation is currently in the slope-intercept form y= mx + b
You want to change it to the Standard form Ax + By = C
To do this you want to make sure of two things:
1. All variables (x and y) as well as their co-efficients are on the same side of the equation.
2. The variable x is positive.
For your problem, y= -2x+8, you're going to simply move the x variable to the same side as the y variable.
To do that you will +2x to both sides of the equation, getting y + 2x = 8 -2x + 2x, and -2x + 2x = 0;
Since 2x is now positive you don't need to do anything else. Your answer is 2x + y = 8
Let me know if you have any questions
