Q: what is the standard form of
Y-8=2(x+2)?

  • algebra 1 -

    MISTAKE:

    its actually y-8=2(x+3)

  • algebra 1 -

    Answer Choices:

    A. 2x+y=14
    B. y=2x+14
    C. 2x-y=-14
    D. y-2x=11

    most texts use these definitions:

    y intercept - slope form : y = mx + b
    standard form: Ax + By = C
    general form : Ax + By + C = 0

    so you want the x and y terms on one side, the constant on the other side

    y - 8 = 2(x+3)
    y - 8 = 2x + 6
    2x + 6 = y - 8
    2x - y = -14 , looks like C

  • algebra 1 -

    Ax +By = C

    y-8 = 2x +6
    y-8-6 =2x + 6 -6
    y-14 = 2x
    y-y -14 = 2x -y
    -14 = 2x-y


    C
