If the linear equation 3x = 9 − 2y is written in standard form, what is the value of B?
I know standard form is y = mx + b but I'm not sure how to put it in standard form unless it would be something like:
2y = 3x + 9 but I really don't think that's right.

yes. you'll have to rearrange it into 2y = 3x  9 then into y = 1.5x +4.5

i think the b is the one without the x, i.e. 4.5
