the solution for
19/6+4y=8y-1/6

  • Math -

    let's get rid of fractions by multiplying by 6 , the LCD

    19 + 24y = 48y - 1
    20 = 24y
    y = 20/24 =5/6

  • Math -

    19 / 6 + 4 y = 8 y - 1 / 6

    19 / 6 + 1 / 6 = 8y - 4 y

    20 / 6 = 4 y Multiply both sides by 6

    20 = 6 * 4 y

    20 = 24 y

    20 = 24 y Divide both sides by 24

    20 / 24 = y

    4 * 5 / ( 4 * 6 ) = y

    5 / 6 = y

    y = 5 / 6
