The smaller zero of the function is of multiplicity __, so the graph of f ___ the x-axis at x=__. The larger zero of the function is of multiplicity ___, so the graph of f ___ the x-axis at x=____.

f(x)=0

f(x) = x² (x-5) = 0

x² = 0 => x=0 multiplicity 2 (Even multiplicity, the graph touches the x-axis but doesn't cross it)

x-5=0 => x=5 multiplicity 1 (Odd multiplicity, the graph crosses the x-axis)
