Solve for y: 2y y  1  =  9 3 A.) 1/3 B.) 3/5 C.) 4/9 D.) 5/4 E.) 3 When two fractions are equal, that is a "proportion". To solve, just crossmultiply. 2y y  1  =  9 3 9(y  1) = 2y(3) {crossmultiplied} 9y  9 = 6y {used distributive property} 9 = 3y {subtracted 9y from both sides} y = 3 {divided both sides by 3} E.) 3 © Algebra House
