Answer:

#(x+2)(x+5)#

Explanation:

To factor the quadratic #x^2+7x+10#, you need to find two numbers that add together to give the first coefficient, and multiply to give the second coefficient. In this case, these numbers are #2# and #5#. The signs are both positive, so the signs in the factored quadratic are also positive.
