Work Step by Step

The general form of a line is defined as $Ax+By=C$. First, multiply both sides of the equation by the least common denominator of all the terms. Then bring the $x$-term over to the left side of the equation. $y=-\frac{4}{5}x-\frac{1}{3}$ $15(y)=15(-\frac{4}{5}x-\frac{1}{3})$ $15y=-12x-5$ $12x+15y=-5$
