1. 8/(x+4) +1 = 5x/(x^2-2x-24)

2. 2x(x+3) - x/(x+7) = (x^2-1)/(x^2+10x+21)

Any one able to show me where to start after figuring out the LDC would be my hero for the day!

The LDC for 1 is (x-6)(x+4)

and far 2 it's (x+3)(x+7) correct?

First ones answer is x= 8 and -9...corret ??? but the other one I can get anywher with is at alk..

I get this

(2x)(x+7) - (x) (3+3) = (y^2 -1)

then I get (2x^2 +14 x)(x-3x) = (y^2 -1) but then I keep getting zero on both side???? Help please!!!

2x(x+7)-x(x+3) = x²-1

x(2x+14-x-3)=x²-1

11x=-1

x=-1/11

**X'(y-Xβ)=0**
