so standard form is x+y = some number so here we have to get 5 on one side by itself

Ok 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???

Standard 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.

Thats the part that really confuses me...I got 5=y2x.

Start 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.

To do that, subtract 2x from both sides: y = 2x + 5 2x 2x  2x + y = 5 Answer is 2x + y = 5
