Please show all work! Thank you sooo much! (Nod)

7. [(y-1) / y^2 - 3y - 10)] - [(2y)/ y^2 + 2y - 35)]

8. [(5/3c) + 7/ 2v)] / [(c/6) - (3/cv)]

Your grouping symbols have me a bit confused. Do I have it right:

7. $\frac{y-1}{y^2-3y-10}-\frac{2y}{y^2+2y-35}$

8. $\frac{\frac{5}{3c}+\frac{7}{2v}}{\frac{c}{6}-\frac{3}{cv}}$
