00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:12.000
But I will tell you how to find or take an equation and put it in a standard form.
2
00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:14.000
That's on the dressing.
3
00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:16.000
Let's do your problem.
4
00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:17.000
All right.
5
00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:24.000
To take this problem, what we need to do is we need to put it in this format where a x, a represents our coefficient of our x variable,
6
00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:28.000
b represents the coefficient of our y and c represents our constant.
7
00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:31.000
So obviously, this problem right now is not written in this format.
8
00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:35.000
So the first thing we do is we need to write a death to get my y to the same side of the x.
9
00:00:35.000 --> 00:00:38.000
I need to subtract a 9 y.
10
00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:44.000
So if I have an 8 x, negative 8 x, minus 9 y, equals 3.
11
00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:50.000
Now there's two kind of stipulations we have when putting something in a standard form.
12
00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:53.000
One, our a has to be positive.
13
00:00:53.000 --> 00:00:59.000
And two, every coefficient has to have the greatest confactor of 1.
14
00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:03.000
So they can't have fractions with them.
15
00:01:03.000 --> 00:01:05.000
So what we need to do, I have a negative 8.
16
00:01:05.000 --> 00:01:06.000
I need to get rid of that negative 8.
17
00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:10.000
To get rid of it, I just need to divide both sides by negative 1.
18
00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:12.000
Therefore, this will make positive.
19
00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:18.000
So I get a positive 8 x plus 9 y equals a negative 3.
20
00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:25.000
And now my equation written like this is not as in a form.
