Solve:
(t+24)/(t^2-t-56)+7/(t-8)=3/(t+7)

I do know that (t^2-t-56) can be factored out to (t-8)(t+7) so I have the equation as (t+24/(t-8)(t+7) +7(t+7)/(t-8)(t+7)-3(x-8)/(t-8)(t+7) is this correct ot what am I doing wrong?

3. the common denominator is (t-8)(t+7)

so multipy both sides by

(t-8)(t+7)

(t-24) + 7(t+7)=3(t-8)
solve for t.

Is this right: Solve: x^2+16x+60=0 this is what i did: i used the quadratic formula and this is what i ended up with. x = -8 +- (sqrt(16))/(2) Which is -8 +-2 Or you could have factored the quadratic (x+10)(x+6) Which is -8 +-2 Or
