#1. (3/x) + (2/x+5) = (8/3x)
#2. (9/x+7) + (3x/x^2 +4x-21) + (8/x-3)
Thanks again for everyone's help!!
For #1, get a common denominator on the left side by multiplying the bottom of each fraction by the top of the other fraction:
Distribute your terms in the top and bottom. Then cross multiply with the right side. Collect like terms...Can you go from there?
For #2, factor the denominator of the middle term, you should get (x+7)(x-3) then you should know what to do from there.
Good luck!
