I have a strong feeling your equation was meant to say

5/(y+4) + 11/(y^2 + y - 12) = 7/(y-3)

because of the proximity of the + and = signs, also since y^2 + y - 12 = (y+4)(y-3)

so multiply each term by y^2 + y - 12

5(y-3) + 11 = 7(y+4)

5y - 15 + 11 = 7y + 28

-2y = 32

y = -16

#4

width --- x

length ---- 2x+2

2(2x+2 + x) = 40

6x + 4 = 40

6x = 36

x = 6

so the length is 2(6) + 2 = 14

#7

correct

#16

You left out the operation sign, I will assume it is >

|x+4| > 6

x+4>6 or -x-4 >6

x>2 or -x > 10

x> 2 or x < -10

if the statement was |x+4| < 6

we would have

-10 < x < 2

call me old-fashioned but my notation is more indicative than the "interval" notation that seems to be used quite often these days.
