what I've done so far is (w+6)(w+4) / (w+1)(w30) + 8/w5

Is your equation
\[\frac{ w^2 + 2w 24 }{ w^2 + w 30 } + \frac{ 8 }{ w5 }\]

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
\[(w+6)(w5)\]

I cross out w+6 because it's on in denominator and other one? so it would be w+4 / w5 + 8/w5? what do I do next? :)

You can add the numerators of fractions with the same denominators.
so it should be
(w+4 +8)/(w5)
