$\frac{7 x - 10}{3 x + 5}$

#### Explanation:

Both of fractions have $3 x + 5$ as the denominator, so you are able to just add the numerators without having to touch the denominator:

$\frac{3 x - 7 + 4 x - 3}{3 x + 5}$

Now you can combine like terms in the numerator:

$\frac{7 x - 10}{3 x + 5}$ to get your answer.
