12-196.

Rewrite the expression on the left side of the equation so that it is the same as the one on the right. Explain each algebraic step you take.

$\frac { ( 1 - \frac { 5 } { y } ) ( 3 + \frac { 2 } { z } ) } { x } = \frac { ( y - 5 ) ( 3 z + 2 ) } { x y z }$

$\left(1-\frac{5}{y}\right)=\left(\frac{y}{y}-\frac{5}{y}\right)=\frac{1}{y}(y-5)$
