    just like performing this operation on numbers, take the lcm of denominator and work this out. BTW, in this particular case you can take the common denominator y outside of the equation and reduce the rest, to make it look more artithmetic rather than algebraic

    yeah, so make the fractions have the LCD it now looks like: \[\frac{ 15 }{ 6y } + \frac{ 1 }{ 6y } - \frac{ 8 }{ 6y } = \] i can't see what it's equal too lol

    when you have the same denominator, you can directly perform the numerator functions without further modification
