    \[\sf \frac{-n+3}{n-2}+\frac{-3n-7}{n-2} \implies \frac{(-n+3)-3n-7}{n-2}\]

    is this correct: -n+3/n-2 + -3n-7/n-2?\[\frac{ -n+3 }{ n-2 }+\frac{ -3n-7 }{ n-2 }\]

    Its for a test, thats why i asked on here cause I thought I was doing something wrong but apparently the test is wrong. Im just going to the one with the n-2 denominator so it wont count against me for not answering, thanks for your help!
