# How do you write Y=2/3x-2 in standard form?

Nov 27, 2016

$2 x - 3 y = 6$

#### Explanation:

Standard form: Ax + By = C
Just take 2/3x to the other side.

So the answer would be $- \frac{2}{3} x + y = - 2$

But not yet the final answer... In standard form $x$ can't be negative and A, B and C need to be an integers (whole numbers)

(I multiplied the whole equation by -3)

$2 x - 3 y = 6$

So the final answer would be: $2 x - 3 y = 6$
