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.
