1. ## Linear Equation

Question

$\frac{5}{2y}-\frac{1}{y}=\frac{3}{4}$

Attempt:
$\frac{5y-2y}{2y^2}=\frac{3}{4}$

I don't know what to do after this Step.. [Shall I cross multiply]

Thank you

2. You attempted the wrong step!

Be it from Start:

step 1: Multiply both sides by 4y (the common of 2y, y and 4).

step 2: The equation will look like: 10 - 4 = 3y

step 3: y = 2

step 4: put y = 2 in original equation and verify!
