n/(n-3) - n/(n+2)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have tried to solve this by giving n a value. I chose n = 6, which gives:

6/3 - 6/8

The LCM of 3 and 8 is 24 so...

6/3 - 6/8 = 48/24 - 18/24 which gives 30/24

Final answer = 5/4

Is that the correct answer and have I used the correct method of solving the problem?
