[(2x+3)/5] - [(5x+2)/8] +1 = 0

How do I do this?

I took the one across to the other side, then multiplied by the LCM 40 and went from there. I got x = 26/-9.

Please someone show me I've been doing this for ages and can't.

EDIT:

Better shot here:

I've done them all apart from 8, 13, 14 and 15. If you could help me with the other 3 that would also be great as I'm having trouble getting started.

Thank you.
