Math assistance needed

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?



I don't understand the rest

so multipy both sides by

(t-8)(t+7)

(t-24) + 7(t+7)=3(t-8)
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(t-8)
    which becomes
    5t = -97
    so your answer is correct anyway. You made two cancelling mistakes, or a typing error.

    Thank You. I understand.
