There are excluded values which make the denominator zero,
 which are k=-5,  and k=-3
then, solving the equation to get, k=-5, which turns out to be one of excluded values.
Therefore this rational equation has NO SOLUTION.
Using a graphic calculator, you can verify to see any point to meet the graph on the left side and the right side.
At k=-5, and k=-3, the two graphs have the same asymptotes but never meet.
