Work Step by Step

Using the rules of exponents and cancelling common factors in the numerator and the denominator, we find: $$\frac{4\left(x+5\right)x\left(x+1\right)}{x^2\times \:2\left(x+5\right)}\\ \frac{4x\left(x+1\right)}{x^2\times \:2}\\ \frac{2x\left(x+1\right)}{x^2}\\ \frac{2\left(x+1\right)}{x}$$
