    Something went terribly wrong with your ALGEBRA (not calculus).
    It should be (5/x) + C

    The second line is correst, but you have simplified it incorrectly, also the boxed identity is correct but seems to have no relevance to the rest.

    The -1 exponent in line two applies only to the x not to the 5, also (-5)/(-1) = 5
