I got (-3y+4)/5(y-2).Answer by stanbon(60774)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(2/5) - (y/(y-2)) The LCD is 5(y-2) Write each fraction with LCD as its denominator, as follows: =[2(y-2)]/LCD -[2y/LCD] Combine the numerators to get: =[2y-4-2y]/LCD = -4/[5(y-2)] This is the simplest form you can get.
