# How do you write 7y=-5x-35 in standard form?

Jul 8, 2015

The standard form will be $5 x + 7 y + 35 = 0$

#### Explanation:

Because the standard form is $x + y +$constant$= 0$

The standard form will be $5 x + 7 y + 35 = 0$

Rearrange the equation so it fits the form $A x + B y = C$, where $A$ is not negative, and $A$ and $B$ are not both equal to zero.

#### Explanation:

The standard form of a linear equation is $A x + B y = C$, where $A$ is not negative and $A$ and $B$ are not both equal to zero.

$7 y = - 5 x - 35$

Add $5 x$ to both sides of the equation.

$5 x + 7 y = - 35$

The equation is now in standard form.
