***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**

Note that -8 does not cause any denominators to be zero. So it
is not an extraneous solution.

**-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**

Note that 5 does cause two of the denominators to be zero.

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

**The answer is NO solution.**
