y + 5 = 1/2(x + 2) in Standard Form for Graphing.
I think it would go like this:
2y  10 = 1(x + 2)
2y  10 = x + 2
?
The actual answer is x – 2y = 8 but I don't understand how?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. The problem is I have the answer from the lesson (it's a practice question) but I don't understand how that is the answer: x – 2y = 8. Thank you for your help!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1start with: y + 5 = 1/2(x + 2) multiply both sides by 2 gives us: 2y + 10 = (x+2) subtract 2 from both sides gives us: 2y + 8 = x subtract 2y from both sides gives us 8 = x  2y flip the equation around gives us: x  2y = 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THANK YOU! I was originally trying to move the 8 over to the 2. And "originally" means before I tried dividing by 2, thinking I might have been supposed to for moving it to the other side... I don't know. Anyways, thank you!
