Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Multiplicity - How many times a particular number is a zero for a given polynomial. t can be thought of as "How many times does the solution appear in the original equation?".

 So -5 has multiplicity of 1 and 7 has multiplicity of 2.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
