Rewrite the expression.
Set up the rational expression with the same denominator over the entire equation.
Multiply each term by a factor of 1 that will equate all the denominators. In this case, all terms need a denominator of 100. The 2425 expression needs to be multiplied by 44 to make the denominator 100.
Multiply the expression by a factor of 1 to create the least common denominator (LCD) of 100.
Multiply 24 by 4.
Since the expression on each side of the equation has the same denominator, the numerators must be equal.
Solve for y y/100=96/100
