2(3y-4)^(3/5) = 54

(3y-4)^(3/5) = 27

3y - 4 = 27^(5/3)

3y = 27^(5/3) + 4

y = (27^(5/3) + 4)/3

= (243 + 4)/3 = 247/3 or 82 1/3

1-(1/a)/1-(1/a^2)

multiply top and bottom by a^2 to get

(a^2-a)/(a^2-1)

= a(a-1)/(a+1)(a-1)

= a/(a+1)

or, since you seem to like reciprocals so much,

1 /(1+1/a)

:-)
