# How do you write 1/2x + y = 3 in standard form?

May 16, 2018

$x + 2 y = 6$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"standard form}$ is.

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{A x + B y = C} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$

$\text{where A is a positive integer and B, C are integers}$

$\text{to express "1/2x+y=3" in this form}$

$\text{multiply all terms by 2}$

$\Rightarrow x + 2 y = 6 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{in standard form}}$
