    Question Transposing Equation to standard form (y=mx+c)

    Please help me Idk what I'm doing wrong. Look at the attachment for my working out and the actual answer which was at the back of my book.
    The question: Transpose each of the equations to standard form (that is, y=mx+c). State the x- and y-intercept for each.
    5(y+2)=4(x+3)

    Re: Transposing Equation to standard form (y=mx+c)

    What you've done is correct, but it needs to be written as y = mx + c, not y = (mx + c)/b where b is some other number. How can you write it without everything being over a fraction, so there's a single number in front of the x and a single constant at the end?
