# Solve the following equations: 7y + 4 / y + 2 = -4/3

**Solution:**

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

7y + 4 / y + 2 = - 4/3

On multiplying both sides by 3( y + 2), we obtain

3(7y + 4) = - 4(y + 2)

⇒ 21y + 12 = - 4y - 8 [Using distributive property]

⇒ 21y + 4y = - 8 - 12

⇒ 25y = - 20

Hence,

y = - 20/25 = - 4/5
