1. \[\frac{ 2a + 5 }{ 5 } 2. \[10\left(\begin{matrix}2a +5 \\ 5\end{matrix}\right)\]

Isn't number 1 already simplified? For number 2, you do 10/5 which is 2. then multiply 2 to (2a+5) and you get 4a+10

Oh ok then multiply 2a to (2a+5) which equals 4a^2+10a then divide that all by 5 you can separate this into 2 fractions [(4a^2)/5]+(10a/5) you can simplify the second fraction by doing 10/5 [(4a^2)/5]+2a

simplify the numerator and you get (2a^2+13). multiply 2 to the numerator and you get \[4a^{2}+26\] now divide that by 5a\[\frac{ 4a^{2}+26 }{ 5 }\]
