Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just making sure \(\Large \frac{3}{2y} + \frac{5}{y1} = \frac{1}{2}\) that's the problem right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh yeah..sorry...well the LCM is right so we multiply by 2y(y1) \((y+3)(y1) + 5(2y) = 1(y)(y1)\) this will be our resulting equation won't it?
