There's nothing to solve. What's the question?

Is it the following fraction?

$\displaystyle

\frac{{\frac{{x - \left( {x + h} \right)}}{{2\left( {x + h} \right)x}}}}{h}

$

Then you can simplify:

$\displaystyle

\frac{{\frac{{x - \left( {x + h} \right)}}{{2\left( {x + h} \right)x}}}}{h} = \frac{{ - h}}{{2\left( {x + h} \right)x}}\frac{1}{h} = \frac{{ - 1}}{{2\left( {x + h} \right)x}}

$
