Homework Help: Math problem still stuck

Posted by Shawn on Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:02pm.

Let f(x) = 1/(x+7)+15/(x-8). Find all a for which f(a)=f(a+15).

I understand this so far
f(a)=f(a+15)
1/(7+a) + 15/(a-8) = 1/(a+22) + 15/(a+7)

I have multiplied the LCD of (a-8)(a+7)(a+22)by both sides with no luck.

This is a multiple choice question
a.) -161/8
b.) 120/7
c.) 161/7
d.) -17
I have the answer as
