Perform the indicated oprrations and then simply.
w2/w 8  w + 2/w + 8 + w  104/w^2 64

algebra 
Steve,
I assume this means
(w2)/(w8)  (w+2)/(w+8) + (w104)/(w^264)
Placing everything ove a common denominator (w^264) = (w8)(w+8) we then have a numerator of
(w2)(w+8)  (w+2)(w8) + (w104)
= w^2 + 6w  16  (w^2  6w  16)  w + 104
= 11w + 104
So, the result is (11w + 104)/(w^2  64)
