Work Step by Step

The given formula is: \[Ax+By=C\] Simplify the given equation for y: Subtract Ax from both sides followed by dividing both sides by B. \[\begin{align} & By=C-Ax \\ & y=\frac{C-Ax}{B} \\ \end{align}\] This is an equation of a straight line in standard form; Ax +By +C = 0 where A, B and C are Integers.
