    5x^2-21x-20/5x^2-16x-16 ?

    Okay :) Well, all you have to do is factor and cancel.

    When you factor 5x^2-21x-20 it will become (x-5)(5x+4)

    and when you factor 5x^2-16x-16 it will become (5x+4)(x-4)

    2x^2+13x+20/x^2-5x-36 Same steps as before, lets factor! 2x^2+13x+20 = (2x+5)(x+4) x^2-5x-36 = (x-9)(x+4)

    => (2x+5)(x+4)/(x-9)(x+4) By cancelling, = 2x+5/x-9
