The first step is to make sure you have your equation in the form of Y = MX + B. After you have your formula set correctly you can know start with transferring from a slope intercept form to the standard form. Let's start using the example y = 2/5x + 3/10. The first step is to get rid of the fractions by multiplying the equation by the least common multiple. In this case the least common multiple is 10. So you multiply the whole equation by 10 and the result will be 10y=4x + 3.After that we can know move the x to form the standard equation. You need to subtract 4x from both sides and will end up with -4x + 10y=3 and that is your answer. You can’t leave a number negative as you see the 4 is negative so what you will do is subtract the whole equation by -1 and will end up with 4x-10y=-3 and that is your final answe
Now lets try another example like y = (1/2)x + 8 . So remember the first thing you do is make sure it is in the correct slope intercept form and once you’ve checked that you have it on the correct way you start. First you subtract 1/2x from both sides to end up with (-1/2 )x + y = 8. In this case we need to get rid of the (-1/2) by multiplying by its reciprocal -2. This will leave you with an answer of x-2y=-16 and you are done.
Lets try one more example: y= (-3/4 )x + 6. First you add (-3/4)x to both sides to get (3/4)x + y=6. Finally we must get rid of the fractions so we clear fractions by multiplying by the common denominator of all the terms which in this case is 4. This multiplication turn the fraction into a whole number leaving us with the answer of 3x+4y=24.
