    1/t-2 - 2/t+2 = 3/t - 2

    Re: Solve equation ...

    1. This is unreadable. Please use brackets where they are needed.

    2. This is not a Differential Equation, as it does not have any derivatives in it. This question should be in Pre-Algebr and Algebra.

    Are you saying that you have no idea how to us basic algebra?
    \frac{1}{t-2}-\frac{2}{t+2}-\frac{3}{t}+2=0~?

    Re: Solve equation ...

    I would interpret that as
    \frac{1}{t- 2}- \frac{2}{t+ 2}= \frac{3}{t- 2}.

    Bgggg, multiply on both sides by the "least common denominator", (t-2)(t+2).
