To simplify the expression (5a+10b) /( 4a+8b), you can factor out a common factor of 5 from the numerator and a common factor of 4 from the denominator. This gives you (5(a+2b)) / (4(a+2b)). Now, you can cancel out the common factor of (a+2b) from both the numerator and the denominator, resulting in the simplified expression of 5/4.
