Since you have a denominator of 3, first multiply both sides by 3. Then add or subtract the terms on the right side to move them to the left side.

y = 2/3 x  7 Multiply both sides by 3: (3)y = (3)(2/3 x  7) What do you get? Remember to distribute the 3 on the right side.

Now since you want everything on the left side, subtract 2x from both sides, and add 21 to both sides.

3y = 2x  21 2x + 21 2x + 21  2x + 3y + 21 = 0 If you don't like to have a negative sign at the beginning (with the x term), you can multiply both sides by 1 and get 2x  3y  21 = 0
