# How do you write y = -4x+5 in standard form?

Feb 19, 2017

$4 x + y = 5$

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{standard form}}$ is.

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{A x + B y = C} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$
where A is a positive integer and B,C are integers.

$\text{Rearrange " y=-4x+5" into this form}$

$4 x + y = \cancel{- 4 x} \cancel{+ 4 x} + 5$
$\Rightarrow 4 x + y = 5 \leftarrow \text{ in standard form}$
