x is a negative number or a decima maybe

- anonymous

x²+6x+9=7+9=16
x²+6x+9=(x+3)(x+3)=(x+3)²=16

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.

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

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

go to Solve x2 + 6x – 7 = 0 by completing the square.
...i dont get how you go from step 3 to step 4

- anonymous

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.

okay i dont get how to "convert the left-hand side to squared form"

- anonymous

That, I answered in my first answer.

Oh my god i'm an idiot, thanks.
