Help with an algebra equation. Cannot find an equation that can be factorised.
I am struggling with a question for revision for my maths exam if anyone could help and explain it would be appreciated.
The question is :
y^2-y+2=14/(y^2-y-3)

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much!

take $y^2-y=x$. your eqn becomes $x+2=14/(x-3)$. can you finish?
