I believe I typed the question wrong... it looks more like this: 

(5/x)-5

---------

(25/x)-5

(5/x)-5 = (5-5x)/x = 5 (1-x)

(25/x)-5  = (25-5x)/x = 5 (5-x)

(5/x)-5 divided by (25/x)-5      = (5-5x)/x divided by (25-5x)/x

                                                =  5 (1-x) / 5 (5-x)

                                                 =  (1-x)/(5-x)
