Whenever you see these kind of problems, check to see what can be factored
The first denominator is the "difference of fractions", so you have
The common denominator would be (x-4)(x+4)(x+1) Note that (x+4) is in both denominators, so we only need have it in the common denominator once
The numerator will not factor, so that is about all we can do with it
