# How do you write 3y= 2x+6 in standard form?

May 17, 2018

$3 y = 2 x + 6$ in standard form is color(blue)(2x-3y=-6

#### Explanation:

The formula for a linear equation in standard form is:

$A x + B y = C$,

where A and B are not both equal to $0$.

Convert the following equation to standard form.

$3 y = 2 x + 6$

Subtract $2 x$ from both sides.

$- 2 x + 3 y = 6$

Multiply both sides by $- 1$. This will reverse the signs, so that the coefficient for A becomes positive.

$2 x - 3 y = - 6$
