I am having trouble with two problems. I can't seem to get a solid solution to either one of them.
3/y+5 + 6/7y add and simplify
5r/8r = 3/r8 solve
Can someone help me please? Thanks so much.

3/y+5 + 6/7y add and simplify
Perhaps you mean
3/(y+5) + 6/7y
multiply top and bottom of both by
(7y)(y+5)
3(7y)/[7y(y+5)] + 6(y+5)/[7y(y+5)]
[21y + 6y +30]/[7y^2+35y]
[27y+30]/[7y^2+35y]
=========================
5r/8r = 3/r8 solve
parentheses as follows?
(5r)/(8r) = 3/(8r)
multiply both sides by (8r)
5r = 3
r = 8

I'm not quite sure about these problems. I know how to do them, but it seems that I get the wrong answer. Maybe I'm supposed to get 'no solution' but I'm not sure. Could someone please help me with them?

I am having trouble with this. Add (simplify if possible) (x^2 + 11x)/(x^2  3x) + (x^2  6x)/(x^2  3x) I actully came up with two possible answers. (2x+5)/x3 and (2x^25)/x6x I'm not sure which answer is correct.

I'm having trouble with these two problems. If someone can help me with the first one I can probably get the second one on my own. I think that I have to factor the bottom but I just cant get it. lim (3x+7)/(8x^23x+11) x> infinity
