#### Explanation:

**You first need to make one side #0#.**

**Expand #(x+3)(x+5)#.**

**Add #7# to both sides.**

**Now that you have equated everything to #0#, you can solve for the roots.** The roots of this quadratic equation are actually imaginary, so you should make use of the quadratic formula.
