# How do you write 2x=3y+5 in standard form?

Apr 10, 2017

$2 x - 3 y - 5$

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{standard form}}$ is.

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{A x + B y = C} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$
where A is a positive integer and B, C are integers.

$\text{subtract 3y from both sides.}$

$2 x - 3 y = \cancel{3 y} \cancel{- 3 y} + 5$

$\Rightarrow 2 x - 3 y = 5 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{ in standard form}}$
