Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so standard form is x+y = some number so here we have to get 5 on one side by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so tahts the part that cnfuses me is getting the number 5 alone on 1 side. The quation is adding so that means you'd have to subtract 2x from each side???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Standard form for a linear equation (the equation that graphs as a straight line) is ax + by = c, where a, b, and c are numbers. In this case, subtract 2x from both sides, and you'll get it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Start again: y = 2x + 5 The y is already on the left, and the 5 is already on the right. All you need to do, is get the 2x on the left side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To do that, subtract 2x from both sides: y = 2x + 5 2x 2x  2x + y = 5 Answer is 2x + y = 5
