1) Simplify \(4\dfrac{3}{4}\) to \(\dfrac{19}{4}\), and we have our equation \(\dfrac{5}{8}y = \dfrac{19}{4}\). By multiplying both sides by \(\dfrac{8}{5}\), we have \(y = \dfrac{38}{5}\).

Simplify \(-5\dfrac{3}{4}\) to \(-\dfrac{23}{4}\) and \(-3\dfrac{1}{2}\) to \(-\dfrac{7}{2}\), and we have our equation \(-\dfrac{23}{4} + x = -\dfrac{7}{2}\). By adding \(\dfrac{23}{4}\) to both sides, we have \(x = \dfrac{9}{4}\) or \(x = 2\dfrac{1}{4}\). (\(-\dfrac{7}{2}\) --> \(-\dfrac{14}{4}\), \(\dfrac{-14 + 23}{4} = \dfrac{9}{4}\))

Hope this helps,

2) 2/3 divided by 14 is basically\(\dfrac{\dfrac{2}{3}}{14}\). If we multiply the numerator and denominator by \(\dfrac{\dfrac{1}{14}}{\dfrac{1}{14}}\), we have \(\dfrac{2}{3} \cdot \dfrac{1}{14} = \dfrac{1}{21}\).
