# How do you write y=(-5x)+2 in standard form?

Jul 9, 2015

$5 x + y = 2$

#### Explanation:

Hi there,

The standard form of an equation is given by;
$A x + B y = C$

In this question we have,

$y = \left(- 5 x\right) + 2$

It can be converted into standard form by using simple algebraic operations.

First open the parenthesis bracket we get,
or, $y = - 5 x + 2$

Now add 5x on both side, we get
or, $y + 5 x = - 5 x + 2 + 5 x$
or, $y + 5 x = 2$

Arrange the above equation in standard form, we get
or, $5 x + y = 2$
