## The Attempt at a Solution

I appologize that I don't know how to use all the symbols on a keyboard (square roots, etc)

But I have so far gotten it to :

square root of 1-3/5 all over 2. I have a sample of this same problem in my book, but they don't explain the next step. Suddenly this problem from here just turns into square root of 1/5...can someone please explain how they got to there?

Thank you all.
