Given 2x+y=6 perform the necessary operations to put equation into the proper general form.Explain in complete sentences how you knew that the equation was a proper general form

2x + y -6 = 0

Step-by-step explanation:

The general form is . It requires that A and B be greater than 1 (not fractions or decimals) and A is positive. This equation is 2x + y = 6 is almost already in the form.  Subtract C to both sides to make it general form. 2x + y - 6 =0. The coefficients of the x and y are greater than 1 and 2 is positive. This meets the requirements.
