# Lost in a Problem

## Homework Statement

What I have is 3x-8/x^2-5x+6+x+2

## Homework Equations

Haven't come upon any as of yet...

## The Attempt at a Solution

My attempt was solve for x, but as I was solving I tried doing each part differently and I came out with 1.5 as an answer. So here are my steps...

3x-8: Don't know what happened, but my answer was -5.

x^2-5x+6+x+2: Here is where more confusion arises... What I did was try and solve the x variables again; add x^2 to -5x, and my outcome was 5x+x^2, then I subtracted x from 5x+x^2 and the outcome was 5x+x^2-x, from there I ended up with -4.

x^2-6x+8: Here I did basically the same as the second part and ended up with -2.

.625, and -1.5 are my answers so far... And, I am lost now and in need of support.
