5+5*root(5) = 5 (1+root(5))
10+root(500) = 10 (1+root(5))

dividing them, we get 5/10 = 1/2

Hence, A will be the answer.

A. 1/2

B. 2

C. \(1+\sqrt{5}\)

D. \(1+5\sqrt{5}\)

E. \(5+\sqrt{5}\)


Bunuel: the title shows that the denominator part is 5000^0.5 instead of 500^0.5. Could you please correct it ? Cheers

taking 5 common from numerator and 10 common from denominator we observe that the remaining factor will be 1+ \(\sqrt{5}\) in both numerator and denominator. Canceling the common factor we see only \(\frac{5}{10}\)= \(\frac{1}{2}\)
Option A

Eq 1 : 5+5* root 5 ---> 5 (1+root 5)
Eq 2 : 10+root 500 ---> 10 + root [5 * 10 * 10] ---> 10 + 10 root 5 ---> 10 (1+root 5)

Now, Eq 1/ Eq2 ----> 5(1 + root 5)/ 10 (1 + root 5) ---> 5/10 ---> 1/2

Hence ans : A

A. 1/2

B. 2

C. \(1+\sqrt{5}\)

D. \(1+5\sqrt{5}\)

E. \(5+\sqrt{5}\)


We can simplify √500 in the denominator: √500 = √100 x √5 = 10√5

Thus, the given expression becomes:

(5 + 5√5)/(10 + 10√5)

Pull out the common factor 2 from the expression in the denominator:

(5 + 5√5)/[2(5 + 5√5)]

1/2

Answer: A

\(\frac{5+5\sqrt{5}}{10+\sqrt{500}}\)

Or, \(\frac{5+5\sqrt{5}}{10+10\sqrt{5}}\)

Or, \(\frac{5 ( 1 + √5)}{10( 1 + √5)}=\frac{1}{2}\), Answer must be (A)
