3y-2/5+2-6y/4=3-5y/6

Sep 11th, 2014

3y - 2 / 5 + 2 - 6y / 4 = 3 - 5y / 6

Multiply by 120 on both sides, we get

24 * (3y - 2) + 30 * (2 - 6y) = 20 * (3 - 5y)

Now , we get

72y - 48 + 60 - 180y = 60 - 100y 

72y - 180y + 100y - 48 + 60 - 60 = 0

Now

- 6y - 48 = 0

Now add 48 on both sides, we get

- 6y = 48

Now divide by -6 on both sides, we get

y = - 8 

Hence y = -8
