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 = (5/3)x - (6/8) .

y = (5/3)x - (3/4)

Least common multiple of 3 and 4 is 12.

y = (5*4x - 3*3)/12

y = (20x - 9)/12

Multiply each side by 12.
12y = 20x - 9

Subtract 12y from each side.

20x - 12y - 9 = 0

Add 9 to each side.

20x - 12y = 9.

The standard form the equation of the line is 20x - 12y = 9.
