# How do you write y=5/6x + 5/12 in standard form?

Jun 25, 2016

It depends what you know as standard form?
As far as equations of straight lines are concerned, standard form is
$y = m x + c$ otherwise known as the gradient/intercept form.

The equation given is therefore already in standard form.

General form for a straight line equation is $a x + b y + c = 0$

$y = \frac{5}{6} x + \frac{5}{12} \text{ } \times 12$

$12 y = 10 x + 5$

$10 x - 12 y + 5 = 0$
