how do i solve this equation?

2/(x+1)=1/(x-1) - (1/(2x-1))

thx

Get a common denominator (x+1)(x-1)(2x-1)

then, each term, multipy it out.

Gather terms, solve.

    Can someone show me how to find the sum of this equation and put it in it's simpliest form? (x^2)/(x^2-25)+(7x+10)/(x^2-25) They have a common denominator: x^2-25 which can factor to (x+5)(x-5) The numerator will add to x^2+7x +10
