Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Look at it in parts:

1. "the square of the sum..."

  This means that we will end up using parentheses and square a quantity of two things (ie. (a+b)^2)

2. "equal to y"

  This means that our quantity is going to be equal to y

Put it all together and you get the answer: (x+5)^2 = y

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
