*Factor 1st den.

*Mult. both sides by LCD of 2(y + 3)(y - 2)

*Get all y terms on one side

*Inverse of sub. 4 is add. 4

-8 is the solution to our equation.

*Get all a terms on one side

*Inverse of add. 10 is sub. 10

*Inverse of mult. by -2 is div. by -2

So 5 is an extraneous solution. That means there is no solution.

The answer is NO solution.
