x²+6x+9=7+9=16 x²+6x+9=(x+3)(x+3)=(x+3)²=16 ------------------- this step is what you're referring to?

Well, when one factors a polynomial, he searches for 2 numbers that, when mutiplied, become c and when added become b (in x²+bx+c). So, we need to find 2 numbers that, when multiplied become 9 and when added become 6.

...where did you get c and b from?

Those are variables, just like x and y. I made them up so you could understand to which numbers I'm referring to.

http://www.purplemath.com/modules/sqrquad.htm go to Solve x2 + 6x – 7 = 0 by completing the square. ...i dont get how you go from step 3 to step 4

What they're doing is, they divide b by 2, and then square that number. They than add that number to both side, so they can complete the square.
