y-1/x+3=-3/4 solving for y. Please show steps so that I can get a better understanding of this.

• Algebra -

y-1/x+3=-3/4

y-1/x+ 1/x + 3-3 = -3/4 + 1/x -3
y - 0 + 0 = -3/4 - 3 + 1/x
y = (-3 - 12)/4 + 1/x
y = -15/4 + 1/x

• Algebra -

Assuming the usual carelessness with parentheses, I see it as follows:

(y-1)/(x+3) = -3/4
y-1 = -3/4 (x+3)
y = -3/4 (x+3) + 1
y = -3/4 x - 5/4
y = -(3x+5)/4
