How do you put this equation into standard form?


Would you please put this equation in this form Ax+Dy+C=0

Hi Pam,

First to get a zero on one side of the equation subtract y from both sides to get 0 = 3.572x + 5.409 -y. Now change the order of terms on the right side so your equation is now 0 = 3.572x - y + 5.409. Finally if two quantities are equal it doesn't matter which you mention first so 3.572x - y + 5.409 = 0
