Hey jeremyjezzanba.

You can't really solve these equations since there is nothing to compare them to: comparisons need either an inequality (like > or <) or an equality (i.e. = ).

You just have an expression which means nothing: if you make it equal to something or give it an inequality then this is a different thing but as it stands you can't solve anything.

You can simplify these but that's different: simplifying fractions of A/B + C/D is basically using the rule [AD+BC]/BD. Have you covered this in class before?
