how do i solve this equation?

2/(x+1)=1/(x-1) - (1/(2x-1))


thx

Get a common denominator (x+1)(x-1)(2x-1)

then, each term, multipy it out.

Gather terms, solve.

    x/x-2 - x+1/x = 8/x^2-2x notice the last denominator factors to x(x-2) and those factors are found in the other two fractions so x(x-2) is the lowest common denominator. now multiply each term by that x(x-2) to get (x)(x) -(x+1)(x-2) …

    Solve: (t+24)/(t^2-t-56)+7/(t-8)=3/(t+7) I do know that (t^2-t-56) can be factored out to (t-8)(t+7) so I have the equation as (t+24/(t-8)(t+7) +7(t+7)/(t-8)(t+7)-3(x-8)/(t-8)(t+7) is this correct ot what am I doing wrong?
