(5)^-1/2 * (5x)^5/2 (5x)^-3/2 =
1/5*sqrt5x^5(1/sqrt5x^3)=
sqrt5x^5/sqrt5*sqrt5x^3=
x^2 sqrt5x/ sqrt5 * x sqrt5x=
x^2/x sqrt5=
x/sqrt 5

Is this correct? If not, where am I going wrong and what is the answer?

  4. I think I understand now. This would be the solution:
    (5)^-1/2 * 5x^5/2+(-3/2)=
    (5)^-1/2 * 5x=
    5x/sqrt5

  5. or, just √5 x, since 5/√5 = √5
