Solve for y. Write answer in simpliest form.

2+7/y=3/5

• beginning algebra -

2 + 7/y = 3/5
7/y = 3/5 - 2
y/7 = 1/(3/5 - 2)

• beginning algebra -

2 + 7/y = 3/5
Get rid of the denominators
Multiply both sides by y
2y + 7 = 3/5 y
Multiply both sides by 5
10y + 35 = 3y
Subtract 10y from both sides
35 = -7y
Divide both sides by -7
-5 = y

y = -5
