Can someone check my work?
the problem is: x=2+3/y and I have to solve for y
I get rid of the denominator y and multiply it with X...so it looks like
xy=5
then just divide by x on both sides for a final answer of y=5/x

You are correct, if the problem was
x=(2+3)/y
Now if it this..
x=2 + 3/y
subtract 2 from both sides
multiply both sides by y
divide both sides by x2 
64 divided by (9+7)
