Hi Darian,

1/3(8y-2)+1/9(12y+10)

By using distributive property,we get

8y/3-2/3+12y/9+10/9

8y/3+4y/3-2/3+10/9

12y/3-6/9+10/9
4y+4/9

4(y+1/9)

Hi Darian;
[(1/3)(8y-2)]+[(1/9)(12y+10)]
We would like the denominator in both bracketed equations to be the same.
Let's multiply the first bracketed equation by 3/3
[(3/3)(1/3)(8y-2)]+[(1/9)(12y+10)]
[(3/9)(8y-2)]+[(1/9)(12y+10)]
[(24y/9)-(6/9)]+[(12y/9)+(10/9)]
(36y/9)+(4/9)
4y+(4/9)
or
4[y+(1/9)]
