Math assistance needed

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?
I don't understand the rest
so multipy both sides by
(t-24) + 7(t+7)=3(t-8)
solve for t.
The choices are:
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(t-8)
5t = -97
so your answer is correct anyway. You made two cancelling mistakes, or a typing error.
Thank You. I understand.
