# How do you write the equations -2x - 2y - 8 = 0 in standard form?

Oct 19, 2015

$y = - x - 4$

#### Explanation:

Isolate $y$, simplifying whenever possible

$- 2 x - 2 y - 8 = 0$ (Isolate $y$)

$- 2 x - 8 = 2 y$ (Divide by $2$)

$- 4 - x = y$

Turn it around

$y = - x - 4$

And there you have it.
