Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2y+\frac{3}{y}=\frac{3}{2} \\ \text{ multiply both sides by } y \neq 0 \\ y(2y+\frac{3}{y})=y(\frac{3}{2} )\\ y(2y)+y(\frac{3}{y})=\frac{3}{2}y \\ 2y^2+3=\frac{3}{2} y \\ \text{ if you don't want \to deal with any fractions multiply both sides by 2 } \\ 4y^2+6=3y \\ \text{ subtract} 3y \text{ on both sides } 4y^23y+6=0\] you have a quadratic equation to solve. but the equation you wrote is probably not the equation you meant you probably meant \[\frac{2y+3}{y}=\frac{3}{2}\] though I could be wrong about that too you did say rational expression after all and you have an equation composed of rational expressions on left and right side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and if you meant the last equation I wrote which is (2y+3)/y=3/2 I would still multiply both sides by y and 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2(2y+3)=3(y) \\ 4y+6=3y\] You subtracted 4y on both sides right?
