How do you write $y=\frac{2}{3}x-7$ in standard form?

Explanation:
The standard form for a linear equation is ${A}_{x}{B}_{y}=C$, where A,B, and C are numbers, and x and y are variables.
$y=\frac{2}{3}x-7$
Subtract $\frac{2}{3}x$ from both sides of the equation.
$-\frac{2}{3}x+y=-7$
Multiply both sides by -1.
$\frac{2}{3}x-y=7$
$A=\frac{2}{3},B=-1,C=7$
