Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Watch out for the parenthesis. \[434+70y/65y=59\] is different from \[(434+70y/6)5y=59\] which is different from \[434+(70y/6)5y=59\] or\[434+(70y/65y)=59\] I know it's boring, but it's way better to write all the necessary parenthesis. For the \[(434+70y)/(65y)=59\] form, here it goes: \[434+70y=59*(65y)\]\[434+70y=(59*6)  (59*5y)\]\[434+70y=354  295y\]\[365y = 80\]\[y = 16/73\]\[y \approx 0,219\]
