(Y-8)/Y + 1 = 1/3

Multiply both sides by Y

Y - 8 + Y = 1/3Y

Combine like terms

2Y - 8 = 1/3Y

Add 8 to both sides, subtract 1/3 Y from both sides

(1 and 2/3)Y = 8

Divide by 1 and 2/3

Y = 4.8

What is 4 3 over 4 plus 10 5 over 12?

It's hard to tell what formula you mean from your description, but I think you mean 4 times 3 divided by 4 plus 10 times 5 over 12. Normally multiplication and division is performed before addition so this equals (4 * 3 / 4) + (10 * 5 / 12) 4 times 3 divided by 4 equals 12 divided by 4 equals 3 and on the other side of the plus 10 times 5 divided by 12 equals 50 divided by 12 50 doesn't go exactly into 12 but we can make it equal 25 over 6 to add the results we need to evaluate 3 plus (25 over 6) to do this, we have to use a lowest common denominator, in this case 6 3 plus (25 over 6) equals 3 * 6 over 6 plus (25 over 6) equals (18 over 6) plus (25 over 6) equals (18 + 25) over 6 43 over 6 43 over 6 is a vulgar fraction, so we extract as many whole numbers as possible 43 over 6 equals 42 over 6 plus 1 over 6 equals: 7 plus 1 over 6 7 1/6
