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)

2/3 over 10 equals 1.8/r solve for r. (2/3)/10 = 1.8r. First, invert and multiply the denominator; i.e.,10. (2/3)*(1/10) = 1.8/r 2/30 = 1.8/r Now cross multiply. 2r = 30*1.8 2r = 54 Now divide both sides by 2 2r/2 = 54/2 r = 27 check …
