2) The graph intersects the y-axis at (0, -6)

y = (x+a)(x+b) will intersect x axis at (-a,0) and (-b,0). Thus, we need to find the values of a and b.

Stmt1 by itself is not sufficient. Stmt2 by itself is not sufficient, as this means ab = -6.

Combining stmt1 and stmt2 will give values of a and b.
