-55/16 is a unit, so that is the same as saying they're co-prime

I'm not sure what F_{5}means, but if it represents the integers modulo 5, both f and g have a common zero, hence a common factor.

I had my solution steps up last night but I took it down after office_shredder made the point that it means they are coprime.

I'm still interested in where the -55/16 came from.
