 Question 1416: how do you convert y=-1/2x+5 to standard form?Found 2 solutions by usyim88hk, AnlytcPhil:Answer by usyim88hk(157)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!y = (-1/2)x+5 (1/2)x+y = 5 Standard form is that u have to put x and y on the same sides of the equation Answer by AnlytcPhil(1276)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!```how do you convert y=-1/2x+5 to standard form? ===================================================== The standard form of the equation of a line is Ax + B = C where |A|,|B|, and |C| are relatively prime integers, if possible, and where A is positive. y = (-1/2)x + 5 Clear of fractions by multiplying through by LCD = 2 2·y = 2·(-1/2)x + 2·5 2y = -x + 10 Add x to both sides: x + 2y = 10 That's it!
