I could really use some guidance in how to solve these two equations. They are probably really simple but I am having trouble finding examples similar to these in my textbook. I don't need the answers just some tips on how to go about solving these. Just looking at them puzzles me. I don't know how to start them. The first thing that pops into my head is to get rid of the fractions with a Common Den. but I am unsure if that is correct. Any tips on how to solve would be very appreciated! Thankyou!
_ = 2z + 35
1 1 -2t
__ - __ = ____
t-2 2 4t-1
This last problem is supposed to be one over t-2 minus one half equals negative 2t over 4t-1 .... hope that helps to understand it
