I can't tell from your problem statement if the x+5 is under the square root (radical) or just the x. A function of x is typically denoted as f(x).

If the x+5 is under the radical, then it's f(x) = SQRT(x+5) = (x+5)^{1/2}. The graph of f(x) will be shifted 5 places to the left along the x-axis relative to the graph of x^{1/2}.

If the x is under the radical but the 5 is not, then it's f(x) = SQRT(x) + 5 = x^{1/2} + 5. The graph of f(x) will be shifted up the y-axis by 5 relative to the graph of x^{1/2}
