#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)"standard form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(Ax+By=C)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where A is a positive integer and B, C are integers.distribute the bracket and rearrange into this form.

#y+2=5/3x+10#

#rArry=5/3x+10-2#

#rArry=5/3x+8# multiply through by 3 to eliminate the fraction.

#rArr3y=5x+24#

#rArr5x-3y=-24larrcolor(red)" in standard form"#
