The solutoin so x^2 - 5x - 6 < 0 is -1 < x < 6, so the set of all possible values of x^2 + 5x + 6 is (2,72).

Guest made a teeny tiny mistake.

The question specifies that the real number x satisfies  x^2 - 5x 6<0  (not x^2 - 5x - 6 < 0). 

 

This means x is in the range from 2 to 3.  Substitute these values into x^2 + 5x + 6 to find the end points of the required set of values.
