It's hard to read like that, here it is formatted:
\[x^2/(x-1) = x+1+x^2/(x-1)\]

I believe you wrote the formatted equation incorrectly. It confused me for a second! Shouldn't it be:
\[x^2/x-1 = (x+1)+1/x-1\]
Anyways...My calculus professor constantly reminds our class of two of the greatest mathematic 'tricks' : adding 0 and multiplying by 1. These two tricks are ways to backtrack through equations which have been simplified and, as a result, are missing parts to the equation.
This problem requires you to add 0.
Instead of simply \[x^2 / x-1\], write it as \[x^2 -1+1/x-1\]
From there, you can split the fraction into two parts, and simplify both. Good luck!

Oops, yes that should have been a 1 instead of a x^2 in the rewrite. Thank you so much, I see it now! :)
