If sqrt(6y + 2)/sqrt(2y + 2) = 5/2, solve for y. Express your answer in simplest fractional form.

\(\sqrt{{6y+2}\over 2y+2}= {5\over 2}\)

 

Now, squaring both sides

\({{6y+2}\over {2y+2}}= {25 \over 4}\)

 

Cross-multiplying both sides, 

\(24y+8=50y+50\)

\(26y=42\)

\(y= {21 \over 13}\)

 

Value of y is \({21 \over 13}\)
