Hey xdamagedxkissesx.

Just expand out both sides and try and solve for y: there is nothing mysterious about the question.

Re: Drawing Linear Equation
3/4(y – 1/5) = 1/8(y + 2/5)
3/4[(5y – 1)/5] = 1/8[(5y + 2)/5]
3/20[(5y – 1)] = 1/40[(5y + 2)]
3(5y – 1)/20 = 1(5y + 2)/40 --------- LCM 40
[6(5y – 1) = 1(5y + 2)]/40
30y – 6 = 5y + 2
25y = 8
y = 8/25 ----- 1 value

simplify
3/4y-3/20= -1/8y-2/40
30y-6=-5y-2
35y=4 y=4/35
