    Here, the sqrt(5) can't be simplified. 5 is a prime number and doesn't divide out evenly to anything. But sqrt(125) can be: |dw:1349330675910:dw|

    Bam, you got it. Now you have: \[\sqrt{5} + 5\sqrt{5}\] There is an implied "1" in front of the sqrt(5) on the left. So you can add them, what do you get?
