To simplify the expression 9/(x-4) - 5/x, you need to find a common denominator and combine the fractions. The common denominator is (x-4)x. Multiply the first fraction by x/x and the second fraction by (x-4)/(x-4). This gives you (9x - 36 - 5(x-4))/(x-4)x. Simplify the numerator by distributing and combining like terms: (9x - 36 - 5x + 20)/(x-4)x. Combine like terms further: (4x - 16)/(x-4)x. The expression is now simplified.
