**Reiny**, Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 11:07pmfor the x-intercepts, F(x) = 0. (the y = 0)

so (x+5)^2-6 = 0

(x+5)^2 = 6

x+5 = ± √6

x = -5 ± √6

You expanded the function, you did not factor it.

Once you get x^2 + 10x + 19 = 0,

if you use the formula and simplify the answer, it comes out the same as my answer.

I have no idea where you got the 0, a parabola can have at most 2 x-intercepts.
