# How do you solve  (3y)/4 - y/3 = 10 ?

Feb 18, 2016

#### Answer:

Solution is $y = 24$

#### Explanation:

To solve (3y)/4−y/3=10, multiply each term by LCM of denominators of all fractions. As these are 3 and 4, let us multiply by $12$. Equation then becomes

(3y)*12/4−y*12/3=10*12 or

$9 y - 4 y = 120$

i.e. $5 y = 120$ i.e. $y = \frac{120}{5} = 24$
