2/5+1/y+5=y-7/5y-25

  • math -

    how about some parentheses or spaces? It's not clear just what you mean.

  • math -

    Solve the equation and check your solution 2/5+1/y-5=y-7/5y-25

  • math -

    If you mean

    2/5 + 1/(y-5) = (y-7)/(5y-25)

    (see how parentheses make it clear?) then we wind up with

    2(y-5) + 5 = y-7
    y = -2

    check:

    2/5 - 1/7 = -9/-35
    (14-5)/35 = 9/36
    yes.
