17Identify the vertex, axis of symmetry and xintercept(s) of F(x)=(x+5)^26. I have no idea how the x intercepts are 5 +/ sq. root 6 and 0. can you show me how this came to be? I factored it so it would be x^2+10x+19, but there's no common factors in ten and 19. Can you show me, please?

for the xintercepts, F(x) = 0. (the y = 0)
so (x+5)^26 = 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 xintercepts.

I have to find the vertex, axis of symmetry, and x intercepts of x^2x+(5/4). I put it in standard form as (x+.5)^2+1.5. Thus, the vertex would be .5, 1.5. But the book's answer is 1/2, 1. How did they get this?
