(1) 1+1/5y =2/15y+ 3/2 Multiply every term by 30y and that will get rid of all fractions: 1(30y)+1(30y)(1/5y)=(30y)(2/15y)+(30y)(3/2) simplifying, we get: 30y+6=4+45y Subtract 45y and 6 from both sides: 30y-45y+6-6=4-6+45y-45y collecting like terms: -15y=-2 divide both sides by -15 y=2/15 ck Substitute y=2/15 into (1): 1+1/(5(2/15))=2/(15(2/15))+3/2= 1+1/(2/3)=2/2+3/2 1+3/2=1+3/2 Hope this helps----ptaylor
