Put on a common denominator.

#### Explanation:

$= \frac{5}{\left(x + 2\right) \left(x + 1\right)} + \frac{3}{x + 1}$

$= \frac{5}{\left(x + 2\right) \left(x + 1\right)} + \frac{3 \left(x + 2\right)}{\left(x + 2\right) \left(x + 1\right)}$

$= \frac{5 + 3 x + 6}{\left(x + 2\right) \left(x + 1\right)}$

$= \frac{11 + 3 x}{\left(x + 2\right) \left(x + 1\right)}$

Hopefully this helps!
