Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ 3y2 }{ 4 }\frac{ 2y1 }{ 8 }\] So you just want to combine these, correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 1. Distribute = \[\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } y + \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } + \frac{ 1 }{ 4 } y + \frac{ 1 }{ 8 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 2. Combine Like Terms: = \[( \frac{ 3 }{ 4 }y + \frac{ 1 }{ 4 } y) + (\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } + \frac{ 1 }{ 8 })\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So your book is doing it the way I did.\[2(\frac{ 3y2 }{ 4 })+\frac{ 2y1 }{ 8 }\] Distribute that 2\[\frac{ 6y4 }{ 8 } +\frac{ 2y1 }{ 8 }\] \[\frac{ 6y+2y41 }{ 8 }\]\[\frac{ 8y5 }{ 8 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@KendrickLamar2014 took it a step further and simplified the 8y/8 part

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I multiplied it by 2 in the beginning so I could place all of it on one fraction. I needed a common denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Technically when you get into higher maths you will have to do it his way, but unless it says to simplify all the way I usually leave it
