    Standard form for a line is the following:\[ax+by=c\]You need to do whatever's necessary to your equation to get it into that form. You need to get rid of fractions, so multiply both sides by 2 first:\[2(y-5)=3(x+4)\]and expand\[2y-10=3x+12\]Now subtract 2y from both sides\[-10=3x-2y+12\]and subtract 12 from both sides\[-22=3x-2y\]So your equation in standard form is\[3x-2y=-22\]
