    Is the (y +1) in the denominator next to the 2?

    ok so you do the inverse. the inverse of division is multiplication. so 2/1 1/2(y+1)=9 2/1. the 2/1 and 1/2 will cancel out. now your left with 2y+1=18. then subtract 1. y=17 Tada there your answer

    now test it. 1/2 (17+1)=9 1/2(18)=9 (half of 18 is 9) 9=9
