Divide through by the 5. Then take the square root of either side, and simplify.

Plug "zero" in for "y" (that is, for f(x)), and solve the resulting quadratic equation.

Note: I think the "point" of this exercise is that you notice the connection between the zeroes of a function f(x) and the solution of the related equation f(x) = 0, since "f(x) = 5x
