I got .Yes, multiplying through is a good first step. What did you get?
I don't know how to solve this.
I tried multiplying the whole thing by 77y to cancel out the denominators, but I don't think it's working. Am I supposed to do that?
Wait a sec...Yes, multiplying through is a good first step. What did you get?How did you multiply through by "77y" and still have "y" in the denominator?I got .
The solution to any "solving" problem may be checked by plugging it back into the original exercise. What do you get when you plug in "-324/616" (after simplifying, of course!)?I think it's actually 385=33+28-616y. Which, simplified, would be 324=-616y. Then, if the right hand side is divided by -616, the left side would be something like , right?
is the most reduced I can get. So I plug it back in... and oh no...The solution to any "solving" problem may be checked by plugging it back into the original exercise.
