I assume that you need the final and initial ratio of kinetic energy of bullet.

According to Conservation of Momentum, mvp = (m+M)V where, m is the mass of the bullet, vp is the velocity of the bullet before collision, M is the mass of the sandbag and V is the velocity after the collision.            0.05* v= (0.050+5)VTherefore, vp = [5.050/0.05] V = 101 V Ratio of final KE to initial KE = [0.5mV2] / [0.5mvp2] = 10‑4  (approx.)
