-5/x-3 - 3/x+3 = 2/x^2-9

You said to divide by 9 on both sides
9(x+3)-3(x+3)=2
9x+27-3+9=2
6x=36
6x=48
x=8

Is this correct? Thanks for your help.

    Damon, Thanks for the help. Let me see if I get it now. So, -2x < -4 divide both sides by -2 answer is x > 2 I had x < 2, but I reverse the sign since I divided by a -2 on both sides, correct?
