Homework Help: math/algebra

Posted by dee on Sunday, July 29, 2007 at 11:08am.

simplify. 20/5 - 1/5
I come up with 2 different answers
(1) 2 5/5 - 1/5
25 - 15
1/5
or
(2) 20/5 - 1/5 =
(4 ) - 1/5
2 - 1/5 =
10/5 - 5/5 = (10- 5)/5 and neither are the answers I have to choose from which are:
a) (20-55) /5 (b)(20-5) /5 (c)cannot be simplified (d)1/5 sqrt 5


why do all my sqrt problems,when i copy and paste come out like up above? these are actually sqrt 20/5 - 1/ sqrt5 ect

Here is a simple way to get your computer to print the √ sign

hold down the "Alt" key on the keyboard while you type in 251 on the number pad, then release the "Alt" key, you should see the √ symbol.

e.g. your 20/5 - 1/ sqrt5 is
20/5 - 1/√5
