    hate those multiple lines question....just writing it out is a headache :( lets see...how does it look below? \[\frac{ \frac{ 5 }{ a } + 1 }{ \frac{ a }{ 5 } - \frac{ 5 }{ a }} * \frac{ 5a }{ 5a }\]

    thats really just multiplying 5a/5a which is equal to 1

    we do that by simplying the above expressor....can u tell me what is left on the top? \[\left( \frac{ 5 }{ a } + 1\right)*5a\]

    that simplifies to \[\frac{ 5 }{ a }*5a + 1*5a\]

    \[\frac{ x }{ x } = 1~~~\frac{y }{ y} = 1~~~~\frac{ batman }{ batman } = 1\]

    nope....remember what iambatman said? \[\frac{ jravenv }{ jravenv } = 1\] so \[\frac{ a }{ a } = ?\]

    25?

    Yes!! so \[5*5*\frac{ a }{ a } = 25\] that is the top part. then we need to simplify the bottom part ok?

    Oh wait....how about 1*5a....what is that equal to?

    5a

  25. sdfgsdfgs

    so the top part is equal to 25+5a so far so good?

    Bottom part is \[(\frac{ a }{ 5 } - \frac{ 5 }{ a })*5a\] think u can handle it one piece at a time?

    I think so..

    first thing to do is: \[\frac{ a }{ 5 }*5a - \frac{ 5 }{ a }*5a\]
