How do you turn these equation into a standard form?

this is the standard form:

ax+by=c

here are the following equations:

2x = y + 1/2

y - 2 = 1/4x + 1

3y + 3 = 6x - 15

Please help and explain. Thank you.

    1) subtract y from both sides
    2) add 2 to both sides, subtract 1/4x from both sides
    3)subtract 3 from both sides, subtract 6x from both sides
    hope that helps
