1. You can try to set it up like long division (to check, multiply):

......-2x^2 + 15x + 25 R 63
...________________________
x-3)-2x^3 + 21x^2 - 20x - 12
....-2x^3 + 6x^2 -->subtracting will change signs
.....___________
............15x^2 - 20x
............15x^2 - 45x -->subtracting will change signs
............___________
....................25x - 12
....................25x - 75 -->subtracting will change signs
...................._________
......................... 63(remainder)

7/x+5/3x=2/x-5 so lcm=3x(x-5) 21(x-5)+5(x-5)=5x 21x-105+5x-25=5x 26x-130=5x -26x to both sides -130=-21x divide each side by -21 -130/-21 x=6.19 is this correct thanks for checking my work.
