Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok i am suppose to convert this into standard form \[y4=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }(x+5)\] and i did the distribute and got \[y4=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }x+\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then i multiply 4 on both sides\[4(y4)=4y16\] \[4y16=x+\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }\] then i know u add 16 but i cant put it into standard form from here.... It cant @Ashleyisakitty @satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y4=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }(x+5)\] do not multiply out, multiply by 4 \[4y16=x+5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@satellite73 has already given the corrected answer as x−4y=−21 You can work with that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(y4=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }(x+5)\) Cross multiply \(4(y4)=x+5\) The standard form requires that all coefficients are integers, which we now satisfy. It is also preferable to express it with Ax+By=C, and A preferably positive. So we move all variables to the right (where x is positive) 4y16=x+5 165=x4y 21=x4y Without loss of generality, we switch sides, x4y=21, same as what @satellite73 got.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh u didnt distribute the x and 1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1By crossmultiplying, I distribute on the left hand side 4(y4) becomes 4y16
