So far, I have B + A(x+3)(x-8) = (x+3)²+(x-8)² I don't know what to do next...

Apparently, I need second equation somehow.

OK, so we add the fractions:\[\frac{ x-8 }{ x+3 }+\frac{ x+3 }{ x-8 }=\frac{ (x-8)^2+(x+3)^2 }{ (x+3)(x-8) }\]\[=\frac{ x^2-16x+64+x^2+6x+9 }{ (x+3)(x-8) }=\frac{ 2x^2-10x+73 }{ x^2-5x-24 }=\] From this it is clear that A=2. Now we have to get B!

The last fraction is:\[\frac{ 2x^2-10x+73 }{ x^2-5x-24 }=\frac{ 2x^2-10x-48+121 }{ x^2-5x-24 }=\frac{ 2(x^2-5x-24)+121 }{ x^2-5x-24 }\]\[=2\frac{ 121 }{ x^2-5x-24 }=2\frac{ 121 }{ (x+3)(x-8) }\]So B = 121.
