(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

RE: F(y)= (1/y[tex]\hat{}2[/tex] - 3/y[tex]\hat{}4[/tex])(y+5y)

the answer is: F=5+14/y[tex]\hat{}2[/tex]+9/y[tex]\check{}4[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

F(y)= (f*g)[tex]\acute{}[/tex]

f[tex]\acute{}[/tex]*g)+(f*g[tex]\acute{}[/tex])

(-2y[tex]\hat{}-3[/tex]+12y[tex]\hat{}-5[/tex])*(y+5y[tex]\hat{}3[/tex])+(y[tex]\hat{}-3[/tex]-3y[tex]\hat{}-4[/tex])*(1+15y[tex]\hat{}2[/tex])

so, I get (14/y[tex]\hat{}2[/tex] +9/y[tex]\hat{}4[/tex])+5y,

which is very close to the answer in the book, except that instead of 5y they have the answer as just (14/y[tex]\hat{}2[/tex] +9/y[tex]\hat{}4[/tex])+5
