    I s your expression like this: \[\frac{{3x}}{{x + 5}} + \frac{7}{{x + 5}}\]

    in that case, since the denominators are equal each other, then you have only to add together 3x and 7, namely: \[\frac{{3x}}{{x + 5}} + \frac{7}{{x + 5}} = \frac{{...}}{{x + 5}}\] please complete

    So then it will just be 3x+7/x+5 ?
