Solve:
(t+24)/(t^2t56)+7/(t8)=3/(t+7)
I do know that (t^2t56) can be factored out to (t8)(t+7)
so I have the equation as (t+24/(t8)(t+7) +7(t+7)/(t8)(t+7)3(x8)/(t8)(t+7)
is this correct ot what am I doing wrong?
I don't understand the rest
so multipy both sides by
(t8)(t+7)
(t24) + 7(t+7)=3(t8)
solve for t.
The choices are:
a.)97/5
b.)122/5
c.)13
d.)13/5

One of them is correct.

a.)97/5 is the answer I get is that correct?

Well you had an error in your last equation, which should read
(t+24) + 7(t+7) = 3(t8)
which becomes
5t = 97
so your answer is correct anyway. You made two cancelling mistakes, or a typing error. 
Thank You. I understand.
