The standard form line equation is Ax + By = C. A shouldn't be negative, A and B shouldn't both be zero, and A, B and C should be integers.

The equation is y = (- 2/3)x + 4.

Subtract 4 from each side.

y - 4 = (- 2/3)x

Multiply each side by 3.

3y - 12 = - 2x

Add 2x to each side.

2x + 3y - 12 = 0

Add 12 to each side.

2x + 3y = 12.

The standard form the equation of the line is 2x + 3y = 12.
