# How do you write y=-7x+2 in standard form?

Mar 7, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The standard form of a linear equation is: $\textcolor{red}{A} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{B} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{C}$

Where, if at all possible, $\textcolor{red}{A}$, $\textcolor{b l u e}{B}$, and $\textcolor{g r e e n}{C}$are integers, and A is non-negative, and, A, B, and C have no common factors other than 1

To write this equation in Standard Linear Form add $\textcolor{red}{7 x}$ to each side of the equation:

$\textcolor{red}{7 x} + y = \textcolor{red}{7 x} - 7 x + 2$

$7 x + y = 0 + 2$

$\textcolor{red}{7} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{1} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{2}$
