2x/x+2  - x-3/x+5  original equation

= 2x (x+5) / x+2(x+5)  -  (x-3)(x+2) / x+2(x+5)   Multiply each side of the minus sign by the other sides                                                                             denominator over itsself to find common denominator.

= 2x(x+5) - (x-3)(x+2)  /  x+2(x+5)                     do the subtraction

= 2x^2 + 10x - x^2 + x + 6 / x+2(x+5)                  Multiply out the top terms 

= x^2 +11x +6 / x+2(x+5) = A                              simplifify
