You are supposed to make a common denominator.
I need some help solving an equation for y=17-x-(π/2)x. I solved for x earlier in the problem and got x=34/(π+4). I got as far as to y=17-(34/(π+4))-(π/2)(34/(π+4)) in solving the equation, but I'm not sure what to do next. The answer is 34/(π+4). Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?
Thank you in advance for the help!
