 Question 366876: ½(y-2)+2 =3/8(3y-4) I am so confused with this problem. can you show me how to solve it step by step. Thank you MichelleAnswer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!``` Hi, ***Note: let's proceed to have all denominators = 1 ½(y-2)+ 2 =3/8(3y-4) multiplying each term on both sides of the equation by 8 so as all denominators = 1 4(y-2) + 2*8 = 3(3y-4) 4y - 8 + 16 = 9y - 12 -8 + 16 + 12 = 5y 20 = 5y 4 = y checking our answer ½(4-2)+ 2 =3/8(3*4-4) = 3 ```
