I was taught a different way to do this type of problem and getting:

A(x^2+64) +(Bx+C)(x-1) = 65

I do not understand what they want in this question! If anyone can help, I appreciate any advice!

your initial decomposition is ok

now use algebra to calculate B and C . you must find B = C = -1.

For this part of the problem, you're only working with the left hand side:

$\displaystyle A(x^2+64) +(Bx+C)(x-1)$

You multiply it out and combine the $\displaystyle x^2$, $\displaystyle x$, and constant terms, and they are asking for the constant term.
