    5/x+1 - x+10/x^2-x-2 = 15
    Sorry for posting in such format but i don't know how to express it in mathematical way.
    Was stuck when i reach (X+1)(X^2-x-2) < Common Denominator

    \frac{5}{x+1} - \frac{x+10}{x^2 - x - 2} = 15

    \Rightarrow \frac{5}{x+1} - \frac{x+10}{(x+1)(x-2)} = 15

    So the common denominator will be (x+1)(x-2) which makes things simpler.

    Well then, suppose you post the next step, which puts the left hand side under the common denominator.

    Then I will post the step after that ....
