    Solving for X

    Please solve for x: 3/2x-2/3y=1/y<br />

    I think the LCD is 6xy. I ended up with 9y=10x, in which case x=9y/10. I just wanted to confirm that I answered this question correctly. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    6xy*(3/2x-2/3y=1/y) = 9y - 4x = 6x \Rightarrow 9y = 10x
