# How do you write 4y = 3/16x - 0.8 in standard form?

May 18, 2015

Problem: Write $4 y = \frac{3}{16} x - 0.8$ in standard form.

Since you have two different variables, I'm going to answer this question as if you want to know how to write the given equation as a linear equation in standard form, Ax+By=C.

Subtract $\frac{3}{16} x$ from both sides of the equation.

$- \frac{3}{16} x + 4 y = - 0.8$

Multiply times $- 1$.

$\frac{3}{16} x - 4 y = 0.8$

Multiply both sides by $16$.

$3 x - 64 y = 12.8$
