## anonymous 3 years ago how to solve the following problem

1. anonymous

$\frac{ 2 }{ 35}=\frac{ y +1 }{ 112 }$

2. anonymous

Cross multiplication. $\frac{ 2 }{ 35 } = \frac{ y+1 }{ 112 }$ \frac{ 2 }{ 35 } = \frac{ y+1 }{ 112 }$2*112 = 35(y+1)$ $224 = 35y + 35$ Can you solve that?

3. anonymous

oh so you add 35 plus 35 and will it be 224=70y or will it stay in the form you did it?

Almost, but the second 35 has no y, which means we only have the 35y $224=35y+35$ $224 -35 = 189 = 35y$ $\frac{189}{35} = y = 5.4$
