To simplify (x^2 + 4x)/(4x + 16), we can factor out a common term from both the numerator and the denominator. In this case, we can factor out an x from the numerator and a 4 from the denominator. This gives us x(x + 4)/4(x + 4). Now, we can cancel out the common factor of (x + 4) from both the numerator and the denominator. The simplified form of (x^2 + 4x)/(4x + 16) is x/4.
