Please explain these problems
5xx=1
a/2+1/5=17
3.5=12x5x
a4a=2a+15a

Let's look at the first problem.
5  x  x = 1
It means that you're subtracting a number twice from 5 and getting 1.
What number times 2 can be subtracted from 5 to get 1?
How about 3?
5  3 = 2
2  3 = 1
Or you can do it algebraically:
5xx = 1
6 = 2x
3 = x
If you post the answers to the other problems, we'll be glad to check them for you. 
a4a=2a+15a
