    How would you convert y - (-2) = 4/3(x - 0) to standard form?

    So the first thing you must do is put the equation in y=mx+b

    You take t right from the equation

    So your A is the number before x (4/3), your B is the number before y (1), and your Cis the remaining number (2)

    So from 4/3x+y=2 into standard.... is that what you're asking?

    subtract 4/3x from both sides

    The slope is a fraction so you have to multiply both sides by the denominatior

  31. iluvlucy

    Medals 1

    so multiply each by three

    now you have 3y=-4x+6 (finished)

    • one year ago
  33. iluvlucy

    So next you add 4x to both sides

    • one year ago
  34. iluvlucy

    You've already chosen the best response.

    and you're final answer is 4x+3y=6

    And for the question before this one I forgot to let you know that in standard form you can't have a fraction, so you simply multiply both sides by the denominator and you'd end up with 4x+3y=6... (4/3x times 3 is 4, 2 times 3 is 6, and of course y times 3 is 3y)

    But you said that 4x + 3y = 6 was intercept slope form right?

    No, standard.... slope-intercept is y=4/3x+2
