Answer:

5.445

Explanation:

You can plug those values in a calculator and get the answer, but here is how you can do it yourself:

#5# is the same as #5.0# same as #5.00# and so on (just different precisions), so we can do the following:

#5.000-0.005=4.995#

Next we subtract the second number:

#4.995-0.05=4.945#

And lastly, we add #0.5#:

#4.945+0.5=5.445#
