help with solving equations with fractions

im more interested in the steps to get to the answer, so please help with steps so i could get it

1. (2x/x-16) = (8/x-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/x-16) = (8/x-16) - (3/x+4)
should be:
2x / (x^2 - 16) = 8 / (x^2 - 16) - 3 / (x + 4)

Please indicate that you understand why, and repost your problem accordingly.
