2. i am not sure why i cant get it to move right but the 5 is sudposed to be over the second 2y

3 5
_ + _
2y 2y
Since denominators are equal, we can just add the numerator:

$\frac {3}{2y} + \frac {5}{2y}$

$\frac {(3 + 5)}{2y}$ <---- Add numerators

$\frac {8}{2y}$

$\frac {8}{2}$ reduces down to $\frac {4}{1}$

so we have:

$\frac {4}{y}$

4. thank you
