# How do you write y - 2=1/7x in standard form?

Sep 2, 2015

$y = \frac{1}{7} x + 2$

#### Explanation:

It's almost already in standard form: you obtain the standard form when you write your equality as $y = f \left(x\right)$, for a certain $f \left(x\right)$.

If we add $2$ to both sides, we isolate the $y$ term, since we get

$y - 2 + 2 = \frac{1}{7} x + 2$

and simplifying

$y = \frac{1}{7} x + 2$
