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

5-r/8-r = 3/r-8 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]
=========================
5-r/8-r = 3/r-8 solve
parentheses as follows?
(5-r)/(8-r) = -3/(8-r)
multiply both sides by (8-r)
5-r = -3
r = 8

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)/x-3 and (2x^2-5)/x-6x 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^2-3x+11) x-> infinity
