How do I solve -3x + 3y=7 in standard form?

I got about half way through my problem and I don't have the other half of my math notes. HELP!

It looks like its in standard form, but may be easier to solve in slope-intercept form.

Add 3x to both sides to isolate y:

3y = 3x + 7

Now divide by 3 to get

y = x + 7/3

Pick some values for x and solve for y
