# How do you write y = 5x- 32 in standard form?

Jan 12, 2017

$5 x - y = 32$

#### Explanation:

When dealing with equations of straight lines, there are 3 possible terms. The standard form is in the format:

$a x + b y = c \text{ }$ where a, b, and c are all integers:

$y = 5 x - 32 \text{ } \rightarrow 5 x - 32 = y$

Add 32 and subtract y on both sides:

$5 x - y - 32 + 32 = y - y + 32$

$5 x - y = 32$
