### Question Description

the square of the sum of x and 5 is equal to y

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
