I thought I was getting the hang of Algebra but this question has had me stumped all day. Y=(XY+2)/(3X-4) make X the subject. Apparently the answer is X=(2Y+1)/Y I can't get anywhere near the answer. Any help would be appreciated.

Apparently the answer is X=(2Y+1)/Y I can't get anywhere near the answer. Any help would be appreciated. Multiply through by (3X-4) Distribute Y on the left: Spoiler: Bring X on one side Factor 2 on the right 2 will cancel and divide by Y
Thankyou. After all that it was really quite simple. Practice, practice, practice. I think that is what I need.
