Determine the points of intersection of the function

$y=(x-5)(x+5)$

With the X

In order to find the point of the intersection with the X-axis, we first need to establish that Y=0.

0 = (x-5)(x+5)

When we have an equation of this type, we know that one of these parentheses must be equal to 0, so we begin by checking the possible options.

x-5 = 0

x = 5

x+5 = 0

x = -5

That is, we have two points of intersection with the x-axis, when we discover their x points, and the y point is already known to us (0, as we placed it):

(5,0)(-5,0)

This is the solution!
