im more interested in the steps to get to the answer, so please help with steps so i could get it 1. (2x/x²16) = (8/x²16)  (3/x+4) 2. (6t+5/6t5) = (2t+7/2t7) and these are solving for a variable 3. solve for g (1/p)+(1/s) = (1/g) 4. solve for t Q = (c/1t)

Also, you have been asked (and shown how) in the past to CLEARLY identify denominators by using brackets; 1. (2x/x²16) = (8/x²16)  (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.
