How do you write the equation #y-13=4(x-2)# in standard form?
step 1: get rid of the parenthesis by using the distributive property
Step 2: move the x and y to the same side of the equation I decided to move the x to the left side
Step 3: Move the constants to the side without the variables in this case add 13 to both sides.
Step 4: standard form typically puts the x first...don't forget to take the negative sign with it.
