Multiply it out. Cancel the four with the twenty.

What is the second term? a mixed number made up by variables? or is it v * (v-1)/4? or is it either? There are still no mixed numbers in this equation. To learn what "terms" are, please try this lesson . To learn how to simplify v(v - 1), please try this lesson or this lesson . :wink: is ...

@stapel_eliz this is all the stages Im trying to solve the equation. Can you help? v\, -\, v\frac{v\, -\, 1}{4}\, +\, \frac{v^2\, -\, 5}{5}\, +\, \frac{1}{20}v^2\, =\, 0 20v\, -\, 20v\, 20(\frac{v\, -\, 1}{4}\), +\, 20(\frac{v^2\, -\, 5}{5}\), +\, 20(\frac{1}{20}v^2\), =\, 20...

Im trying to learn algebra on the side...and Im have no idea how to solve this next equation.... IS the --v-1 a mixed number (the second division from the left)? No; mixed numbers are whole numbers together with fractions, like "three and a half". They do not contain variables. Ok, so its...
