**Answer:**

x = - 5, x = - 1

**Step-by-step explanation:**

To find the x- intercepts let f(x) = 0, that is

x² + 6x + 5 = 0 ← in standard form

Consider the factors of the constant term (+ 5) which sum to give the coefficient of the x- term ( + 6)

The factors are + 5 and + 1, since

5 × 1 = 5 and 5 + 1 = + 6, hence

(x + 5)(x + 1) = 0 ← in factored form

Equate each factor to zero and solve for x

x + 5 = 0 ⇒ x = - 5 ⇒ (- 5, 0 )

x + 1 = 0 ⇒ x = - 1 ⇒ (- 1, 0)
