Write y = -2/5x + 3 in standard form using integers.

A)2x+5y=-15
B)2x-5y=15
C)2x+5y=3
D)2x-5y=3

I don't agree with any of these answer choices. I cam up with this answer; 2x+5y=15, but it is not one of the answer choices. Is my answer wrong? If so, what's the right answer? Please help me!

  3. y = -2/5x + 3

    multiply each term by 5 , the LCD
    5y = -2x + 15

    get the x's and y's to one side, the constant to the other

    2x + 5y = 15

    None of your choices are correct.

    e.g. for y = (-2/5)x + 3 , (the original)
    the y-intercept is (0,3)
    (0,3) does not satisfy any of the given choices, but it satisfies my equation

    You either typed the question wrong, or the question itself is wrong.
