The standard form of a linear equation is Ax+By=C, where A and B are not both 0, and A is nonnegative.
Explain why each equation is not written in standard form. Write the equation in standard form and identify the constants A, B, and C.
3x=−8y+48

−2x+5y=10

12x+y=6

  1. well, of course, the reason for all of them is that they are not written in the required form. Just rearrange the terms as needed.
    3x = -8y + 48
    3x+8y = 48
    clearly, A=3, B=8, C=48
    done. Do the others in like wise.
