    what I've done so far is (w+6)(w+4) / (w+1)(w-30) + 8/w-5

    Is your equation \[\frac{ w^2 + 2w -24 }{ w^2 + w -30 } + \frac{ 8 }{ w-5 }\]

    If that's the case, the way you broke up \[w^2 + w - 30 \] is incorrect.

    If you multiply out the way you broke it up You get \[w^2 - 29w -30\]

    If you fix that, then you should be able to do the problem easily.

    Yes But the correct factorization is \[(w+6)(w-5)\]

    I cross out w+6 because it's on in denominator and other one? so it would be w+4 / w-5 + 8/w-5? what do I do next? :)

    You can add the numerators of fractions with the same denominators. so it should be (w+4 +8)/(w-5)
