**Answer:**

a) (x +2)(x +3)

b) x = -2 or -3

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**a)** The constants in the binomial factors will be divisors of 6 that have a sum of 5. You know that ...

6 = 1×6 = 2×3

The sums of these factor pairs are 7 and 5. You want the pair 2, 3. The factors are ...

x² +5x +6 = **(x +2)(x +3)**

__

**b) **The solutions to the equation are the values of x that make the factors zero:

(x +2) = 0 ⇒ **x = -2**

(x +3) = 0 ⇒ **x = -3**
