# How do you write y=6x  in standard form?

Jun 28, 2015

$6 x - y = 0$ (standard form)

#### Explanation:

The most generally accepted standard form for a linear equation is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$A x + B y = C$ where $A , B , \mathmr{and} C$ are all integers and $A \ge 0$

$y = 6 x$ can be converted into this form by
subtracting $\left(6 x\right)$ from both sides
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$- 6 x + y = 0$
then multiply both sides by $\left(- 1\right)$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$6 x - y = 0$
