The expression is 1/5 inside a square root symbol.

I know that I have to distribute the square root symbol individually to both the numerator and denominator; so the expression will become a 1 inside a square root symbol OVER 5 inside a square root symbol.

This is where I really become confused. I can't find a way to eliminate the radicand from the denominator so it will simplify.
