1. I will read that as:

4/(x^2 - 4x + 1) + 2/(x^2 - 1)

We usually "solve" equations, but you have no equation.

Are you simplifying?
If so, I was expecting the first denominator to factor like the second one, so we can find the LCD.
The way it stands, the simplification becomes more complicated than the current expression.
