  1. In this, like the first one, just gather your similar terms together and write what's left.

  3. The problem as you have expressed it is:

    1/u^2 - 2u -1/u^2 - 4
    = (1/u^2 -1/u^2) - 2u - 4
    = -2u -4

    I suspect that maybe there are brackets missng, maybe

    1/(u^2-2u) -1/(u^2-4) ?

    or maybe not, or maybe different, like

    1/u^2 - (2u-1)/(u^2-4) ?

    but I can't tell.
