I don't understand the whole concept so if you could maybe tell me how I would go about solving that problem and explain each step so I know how to do it in future equations I would appreciate it. Thank youAnswer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16525)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!assume the problem is: y + = 2y - 2 the common denominator would be 4, multiply each term by 4 4*y + 4*= 4(2y) - 4(2) Cancel the denominators and you have 10y + 2(6) = 8y - 8 10y + 12 = 8y - 8 10y - 8y = -8 - 12 2y = -20 y = y = -10 : : See if that checks out, replace y with -10 in the original problem (-10) + = 2(-10) - 2 + 3 = -20 - 2 -25 + 3 = -22
