 Question 128844: Hi I am stuck on this one which has me completely bamboozled. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am asked to Sol;ve the following equation for the variable given, and to write my answer with 3 significant figures. The equation is as follows: 2y/5=3/5+2/y So far this is as far as I have been able to go and I started like this. 2y/5=3/5+2/y Then 2y/5=2/y+3/5 Then 2y/5-2/y-3/5=0 But I now do not know where to go from here. I have looked at the general quadratic equation ax^2+bx+c=0, but cannot work out which is the a, b or c. Again I have also looked at the x=-b+or-sqrt b^2-4ac/2a, but cannot see where to find the a, b or c. Your help would really be appreciated. Thank you. Cheers D.
