I think I know what is happening.

$$\frac{5\sqrt{5}}{5\sqrt{5}} = 1$$

BUT

$$5 \times \frac{\sqrt{5}}{5} \times \sqrt{5} = 5$$

If you do not put parenthesees around the denominator, the calculator only thinks that the number immediately after the "/ "  goes in the denominator.

You need to enter it into the calculator like this:

[5sqrt(5)]/[5sqrt(5)]

Which is what does not have no sense, nor does my operation make sense I understand that the logical result is 1 or is incorrect? If you enter it in the calculator of the page the result is 5 and if you enter it to any calculator the result is 5 I do not understand the because I hope you can help me to understand this grace
