    The only thing that is confusing me is the part "5 times the number".

    2 times the number(same number which is x ) so 2 times the number = 2x 5 times the number = ??? times = multiply

    My equation I used is n^2+5(n)=176 and I got the answers 11 and -16 in which both answers can be used to get 176. :)
