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
