\[x^2-12x+36=0\] now solve the quadratic
gives x=6 can yuo see why
you can use the quadratic formula or you can factor it you can also, look at its graph and see where it crosses the x axis

here yuo can factor the eqn, Do you know how to do this?
I don't understand how you got x = 6...

I'm sorry... I'm so confused. /:
Oh! Wait I think I get it!!
Took me a little bit :P Thank you both a ton!!
if you factorise the equation you get (x-6)(x-6) so when (x-6)=0 x=6 Do you see
Here is how I practice factorising write the factorised end point i.e. (x+3)x+4) and expand the brackets to give\[x^2+4x+3x+12 \rightarrow x^2+7x+12\] now |I take \[x^2+7x+12\] and work backwards because I know it will definitely factorise

wow that's the hard way! but it does always work. Try to factorise it before going through all this stress
just presenting multiple ways to solve it. Quadratic formula works 100% of the time, factoring does not
that's what I said :P
