Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OH I see. Now multiply the equation thru by y getting \[y ^{2}6=5y\]With me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are going to multiply all terms by y in order to eliminate the denominator. \[y \times y=y ^{2}\] Did you follow on the first term?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we are now back to \[y ^{2}6=5y\] Subtracting 5y from both sides we get\[y ^{2}5y6=5y5y=0\]This is a quadratic equation that can be factored and easily solved.\[y ^{2}5y6=0\] (y6)(y+1)=0 y=6 y=1 those are the two answers. Your problem say to check your work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Checking y 6/y=5 6 6/6=5 61=5 5=5 that checks. 16/1=5 1+6=5 5=5 that checks too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yesss so for the next problem would you multiply by 3p?

radar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First lets put all terms containing p on the left. 5/(3p)(5+p)/(2p)=2/3 This was done by subtracting 2/3 from both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Multiply all terms by 6p eliminate the denominator\[10153p =4p\]Please double check my work here as I go and let the dogs in.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did 15 come from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 15 came from multiplying (6p/2p)(5+p)dw:1328673206774:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is 8 ?? Multiply (2/3)(6p)=4p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let us continue: combining similar terms we now have: 5  3p =4p adding 5 and adding 4p to both sides gives us p=5 that is the answer that we must check out. You feel up to it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15/(3*5) + 2/3 = (5+5)/2*5 5/15 +2/3 = 10/10 1/3 +2/3 = 1 1=1 5 is the correct answer.
