Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well standard form looks like this Ax+By=C And some teachers prefer A,B,C to be integers So this means we need to get that term with an x on the side with the term with the y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2standard form of a straight line= ax+by+c=0 y=(1/2)x+3 multiply by 2 throughout and then bring it to to that form :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11/2x + y = 1/2x + 1/2x + 3 y + 1/2x = 3 like that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes and you can write that as 1/2*x+y=3 now to get all the coefficients to be integer multiply by 2 on both sides (this will get rid of that fraction thingy)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would probably leave as x+2y=6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think Ax+By+C=0 this is general form but sometimes called standard form
