-2/3-5/7y=-1/2

Sep 9th, 2014

-2/3 - 5/7y = -1/2

Now multiply 21 on both sides, we get

21 * (-2/3 - 5/7y = -1/2)

7 * -2 - 3 * -5/y = -21/2

-14 + 15/y = -21/2

Now ad 14 on both sides ,we get

15/y = 14 -21/2

15/y = (28 - 21)/2

15/y = 7/2

Now taking reciprocal on both sides, we get

y/15 = 2/7

now multiply by 15 on both sides,we get

y = 15 * 2/7

y = 30/7
