15+2y-y^2/3y^2-16y+5

(5-y)(3+y)/(3y-1)(y-5)
i factor out a negative one from (5-y) to make it same like (y-5)

(-1)(-5+y)(3+y)/(3y-1)(y-5)
i cancel off y-5's. and i get

(-1)(3+y)/(3y-1)

but the real answer have to be 3+y/1-3y what i doing wrong?

    Did you know that -3/4 = 3/-4 = -(3/4)
    they are all the same
    so look at your answer, which is correct

    -1(3+y)/(3y-1)
    = (3+y)/(-1(3y-1))
    = (3+y)/(1-3y)

    Sometimes it happens that you have an answer that looks different from the one in your text, but you may still be correct.
    I would have marked your answer as correct to get full marks.
