 Question 215527: I am trying to solve a Algebraic fraction problem How to find the value of y in the equation the answer i can up with was y=-1 5/8 I am not sure if Iam right or notAnswer by drj(1380)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I am trying to solve a Algebraic fraction problem. How to find the value of y in the equation Step 1. Multiply y to both sides of the equation to get rid of denominator. Step 2. Add 2y to both sides of the equation to get variables on the right side and the numbers on the left side. Step 3. Divide 10 to both sides of the equation. Step 4. Check by substitution of into . which is a true statement. Step 5. ANSWER is I hope the above steps were helpful.
