# How do you write y=3x-8 in standard form?

May 19, 2015

The answer is $3 x - y = 8$ .

Standard form for a linear equation is $A x + B y = C$.

Problem: Write #y=3x-8 in standard form.

Subtract $3 x$ from both sides of the equation.

$- 3 x + y = - 8$

Multiply both sides by $- 1$.

$3 x - y = 8$
