3/y-2 -1/y=4/y^-2y

3y/y^-2y - y/y^-2y=4/y^-2y

3y-y=4

2y=4

y=2

Put y =2 in the original equation on each side, and see if each side equals the other side.

y=2 should immediately be discarded, since fractions with y-2 in the denominator are not defined.

The steps should be

3y/y(y-2) - (y-2)/y(y-2) = 4/y(y-2)

3y-y+2 = 4

2y = 2

y = 1
