Are you sure this question is correct? When you start to work it out you get x squared -12-7=0 THis is not factorable.

x(x-5)=7(x+1)

1. distributive property:

2x2 - 5x = 7x + 7

2. combine like terms

2x2 = 2x +7

3. move the equation to the left of the =

2x2 + 2x + 7

Hope this was what you needed
