Can someone show me how to find the sum of this equation and put it in it's simpliest form?

(x^2)/(x^2-25)+(7x+10)/(x^2-25)

They have a common denominator:

x^2-25 which can factor to (x+5)(x-5)

The numerator will add to

x^2+7x +10 which can factor to

(x+5)(x+2)

Notice the numerator and denominator have a common factor which will divid out.
