To solve the equation x^2/(x + 3) - 5/(x + 3) = 0, we can first combine the fractions by finding a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is (x + 3).

Next, we can subtract the fractions by subtracting the numerators while keeping the common denominator.

So, the equation becomes (x^2 - 5)/(x + 3) = 0.

To solve for x, we can set the numerator equal to zero, since a fraction is equal to zero only when its numerator is zero.

Therefore, x^2 - 5 = 0.

To solve this quadratic equation, we can factor it or use the quadratic formula.

Factoring: (x - √5)(x + √5) = 0.

Setting each factor equal to zero, we have x - √5 = 0 or x + √5 = 0.

Solving for x, we get x = √5 or x = -√5.

Therefore, the solutions to the equation x^2/(x + 3) - 5/(x + 3) = 0 are x = √5 and x = -√5.
