If I understood this correctly, we have

5/8 -  2y/3 + (y -2) /6 - [ 3y + 1] /144  ≥  1 - y + [3y -2] / 36  + 7y / 12 - [ 3y - 4] /16

Multiply through by 144

90 -  96y + 24(y -2)  - [3y +1]   ≥  144 - 144y + 4[3y - 2]   + 84y  -  9[3y - 4]

90 - 96y  + 24y - 48 - 3y - 1   ≥     144 - 144y + 12y  - 8   + 84y - 27y  +  36

41 - 75y  ≥  172 - 75 y

41 ≥  172

-131 ≥  0     never true, thus.....no solution
