Can someone check my algebra answers and help me with the problems I don't understand?

1. n^2-n-20/2n^2 times n^2+5n/n^2-25

answer: n+4/2n

2. (2x-6/21)/(5x-15/12)

answer: 8/35

3. 5x-3/6 - x+3/6

answer: 2x/3-1

4. 5x/26 - 2x/13

answer: 1x/26

5. 3x^2/9x^5

answer: 1/3x^3

6. (x^2+2x-15/4x^2)/(x^2-25/2x-10...

answer: I'm not to sure but i think its x-3/2x^2

7. x+2/x/x-2/3x

answer: 3(x+2)/x-2

8. What values for x must be excluded in the following fraction?

9/x-8

answer: 8

9. x-13/x^2-x-12 + 3x-3/x^2-x-12

answer: 4/x+3

Sometimes it helps to use parentheses when typing these kinds of problems online. From what I can determine, these answers look correct, except for #3. (For #4, you can just state the answer as x/26.)

Here's #3 worked out:

(5x-3)/6 - (x+3)/6 =

(5x-3-x-3)/6 =

(4x-6)/6 =

2(2x-3)/6 =

(2x-3)/3

I hope this will help.
