Write a sentence that explains the relationship between the two numbers. 5/1/2 + 14 (5/1/2 + 14) x 1/4 . My answer was they are all whole numbers am I correct

You will need brackets to properly identify the order of operations.
you probably mean :
5/(1/2) + 14( 5/(1/2) + 14)(1/4)
which is
10 + 14(10+14)/4
= 10 + 60
= 70
As to the relationship between the two number ???
yes, you are right, they are both whole numbers
or
they are both multiples of 10
or
the 2nd is 6 times as large as the first
or
They are in the ratio of 1 : 6
etc.
As to the 5/1/2
this could mean
(5/1)/2 = 5/2 = 2.5
or
5/(1/2) like I thought it would be
= 5(2/1) = 10
try it with something like
12/3/2 on your calculator, typing it just in that way,
youwill get 2
but 12/(3/2) = 8
and you will see my point. 
Ok thank u
