If you added a fifth of one and a quarter to one and a quarter, what would the answer be?
Some punctuation would be nice, so that we know exactly what you are asking... Are you asking what does this equal: $\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \left[ \frac{1}{5} \textrm{ of } \left( 1 + \frac{1}{4} \right) \right] + \left( 1 + \frac{1}{4} \right) \end{align*}$?
