Determine the ycoordinate of the critical point for the function where 0<x<5?
I got the derivative which is 1/x^2 + 1/(5x)^2 but I don't know how to get the answer. The answer is y=4/5 but I was wondering how do you get that?

You did not state what the function is , but from your derivative I deduced it had to be
y = 1/x + 1/(5x) + C
setting your derivative equal to zero
1/(5x)^2 = 1/x^2
(5x) = x^2
25  10x + x^2 = x^2
x = 2.5
sub that back into y = (your equation) and you should get y = 4/5
