# How do you write the equation y-2=-2/5(x-1) in standard form?

Jun 15, 2017

$2 x + 5 y = 12$

#### Explanation:

I am assuming by "standard form" we mean
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} A x + B y = C$ with $A , B , C \in \mathbb{Z}$ and $A \ge 0$

$y - 2 = - \frac{2}{5} \left(x - 1\right)$

$\rightarrow 5 y - 10 = - 2 x + 2$

$\rightarrow 2 x + 5 y = 12$
