(2x/x²-16) = (8/x²-16) - (3/x+4) 2. (6t+5/6t-5) = (2t+7/2t-7) and these are solving for a variable 3. solve for g (1/p)+(1/s) = (1/g) 4. solve for t Q = (c/1-t)

If 3 and 4 are "solving for a variable", then what are 1 and 2?

Also, you have been asked (and shown how) in the past to CLEARLY identify denominators by using brackets;
1. (2x/x²-16) = (8/x²-16) - (3/x+4)
should be:
2x / (x^2 - 16) = 8 / (x^2 - 16) - 3 / (x + 4)
