## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

In this problem, we are asked to solve the equation. Thus, we factor the equation as necessary. Next, we set each of the factors equal to zero to solve. Doing this, we find: $$0= x\left(x-5\right)+7\left(x-5\right)\\ 0=\left(x-5\right)\left(x+7\right) \\ x=5,-7$$
