3. In your first one, you already have a common denominator, so just (-5x - 7)/(x+3)

#2, 6/(x+7) - 3/(x-2) , notice I put in the brackets, they are essential
LCD = (x+7)(x-2)
= ( 6(x-2) - 3(x+7))/((x+7)(x-2))
= (6x-12-3x-21)/((x+7)(x-2))
= (3x - 33)/((x+7)(x-2))

do the last two using exactly the same steps, only the numbers change
