My book shows the V7 chord. Then shows how the V7 becomes the V65. Then there is an exercise to play the I-V65-I. Another exercise is to play I-V7-I. When I look at both, the treble cleff both look the same. All the notes are in the same place. What's the difference?

Note: I did notice that for the V7, the bass cleff is only one note, where as the V65 plays the chord.

The V65 is a first inversion V7. So the difference is what note is in the bass. The V7 will have the root in the bass, while the V65 will have the third.

What do you mean by V65 will have the third? All I notice is that the bass plays the chord, not just the third.

The difference between V7 and V65, is the V65 is the first inversion of the V7 chord.

What this means is:
To play V7, you play the root of the chord in the bass (e.g., the left-most, or bottom-most note).
To play V65, you play the second note of the chord in the bass.

The root of the chord is the note for which the chord is named. E.g., for a D7 chord, the root is D.
The third of a chord is the second note of the chord. E.g., for a Bb7 chord, the third is D.
The bass note of a chord is the note on the bottom, that is, the note of

For example, both C7 and C65 contain the notes:
C - E - G -Bb
To play C7, you play them in that order, with the C as the bottom note on the staff, or the furthest left note on the keyboard.
To play C65, you play them with E as the bass note.
