Set x equal to -1, and x equal to -6. Manipulate these equations so that they equal zero. These are the factors.
-1 and -6
$x=-1$
$x+1=0$
$x=-6$
$x+6=0$
$\left(x+1\right)\left(x+6\right)$
Multiply the factors together, and you have your equation.
$\left(x+1\right)\left(x+6\right)$
${x}^{2}+x+6x+6$
${x}^{2}+7x+6$
