# Respected Sir/Mam,
If while representing anything in the linear equations in 2 variables we get an answer like** 2x+4y=40.**
So is it necesarry that we write it in the form** 2x+4y-40=0.**

**2x+4y=40.**

**2x+4y-40=0.**

Dear deeksha_pareek@yahoo.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

You can represent it in both the ways and both are correct.

It is not necessary that you should represent it in the mentioned way.

So your answer 2x+4y=40 is correct.

Regards
