I get totally confused with this problem. I get confused with the getting the lowest terms.
4/x-5 + -2/x -10/x^2-5x

Working with algebraic fractions is very similar to working with numeric fractions. Fror example:
To express the answer in lowest terms you need to factor both the numerator and denominator, and then cancel any common factors. (I used * for multiplication.)
Now try the same steps with your algebraic fractions.Cheers,
