Solve: 5x3=11+12x; 17x3=11; 17x3+3=11+3= 17x=14; x= 14/17 is this right?

Not quite. In your first step, you aren't doing the same thing to both sides of the equation.
5x3 = 11+12x
You correctly recognized that you need to isolate the x terms on one side. However, if you subtract 12x from the right, you need to subtract 12x from the left, not add. So:
7x  3 = 11
You didn't make any other mistakes after that point. Following the same steps from here should give you the right answer, 
Thank you, I see my error.

(x)/(x3)4(2x5)/(x+2) I posted something before this, so now this is how far I got. The answer I know is (5x^217x9)/(x3)(x+2) first I get (x)(x+2)/(x3)(x+2) (4)(x3)(x+2)/(x3)(x+2)(2x5)(x3)/(x3)(x+2) Then I get x^2+2x4x^24x242x^211x+15 …

Is this correct? The problem says perform the indicated operation. (9x^27x66)+(8x^2+9x) I came up with this for the answear 66+2x+17x^2 or could it be 17x^2+2x66

Thanks Reiny, but I'm still lost. I understand how you multipled by 10X on the right to get 17x, but you went too fast on the left, and I have no idea how you got 10x^220 from the starting left side. Can you show each step?
