# How do you write  x-4=0 in standard form?

Feb 26, 2017

$\textcolor{red}{1} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{0} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{4}$

#### Explanation:

The standard form of a linear equation is: $\textcolor{red}{A} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{B} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{C}$

Where, if at all possible, $\textcolor{red}{A}$, $\textcolor{b l u e}{B}$, and $\textcolor{g r e e n}{C}$are integers, and A is non-negative, and, A, B, and C have no common factors other than 1

To convert this to standard form we must first add $\textcolor{red}{4}$ to each side of the equation:

$x - 4 + \textcolor{red}{4} = 0 + \textcolor{red}{4}$

$x - 0 = 4$

$x = 4$

$\textcolor{red}{1} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{0} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{4}$
