first off, multiply everything by 20a then divide everything by 5 5a^2 + 20a a^2 + 4a

Whenever powers are being divided, you can subtract the powers separately. 5a²/20a You divide 5 by 20 first, so that's 0.25, then subtract 2-1 (no power visible is always 1), so your answer would be 0.25a OR [latex] \frac{1}{4} [/latex] a
