R8500 ( nighthawk X8 ) and EAX20 extender

Hello I have a question about the EAX20 WiFi extender that will be available for purchase 4/16/20. Currently I have a netgear nighthawk R8500 tri band router ( WiFi 5 ) will that extender EAX20 work good with the router R8500

Can someone explain how will this function in specific I want to know if the router is WiFi 5 and extender will be WiFi 6 how will that broadcast work in my home? Will the 5ghz band from ac router broadcast WiFi 5 signal and extender WiFi 6 signal on 5 GHz band. Sorry for this dumb question but I’m just confused when netgear says this extender will work with my current router.
Oh and I want to run separate ssids also
