    oh it's over y-1? i thought the 1 was a whole number...then the LCM is 2y(y-1) sorry bout that

    just making sure \(\Large \frac{3}{2y} + \frac{5}{y-1} = \frac{1}{2}\) that's the problem right?

    y+3 over 2y, but the rest is right

    oh yeah..sorry...well the LCM is right so we multiply by 2y(y-1) \((y+3)(y-1) + 5(2y) = 1(y)(y-1)\) this will be our resulting equation won't it?
