How do you write this equation in standard form

An equation (of a straight line) in standard form is like this.

ax + by = c

the x-term and y-term are both on the lhs and the constant term is by itself on the rhs.

When our equation is

2/3x = -5/2y + 2

We can write this as,

2/3x + 5/2y = 2

It is now in standard form, but we can "pretty it up" by gettting rid of the fractions.

Multiply both sides by 6. This gives us.

4x + 15y = 12
