(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

simplify the following equation

((20*(4*x-1)^4)/(3*x+5)^7)-((4*x-1)^5/(21*(3*x+5)^8))

3. The attempt at a solution

i took (4*x-1)^4)/(3*x+5)^7) as a common factor and ended up with

(4*x-1)^4)/(3*x+5)^7)*(20-((4*x-1)^5/(21*(3*x+5)^8)))

can someone show me how to simplify this all the way, step by step please so i know how to do it for other questions =)
