Homework Help: algebra

Posted by deborah on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 at 10:19am.

7 -y
_____
Y - 7

Does this factor to 1????

Assuming that the two Ys (y and Y) indicate the same unknown, it would be -1.

(7 - Y)/(Y - 7) = -1(Y - 7)/(Y - 7)

The (Y - 7) terms cancel each other out, leaving -1.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
