    take half of 6 get 3 write \[(x-3)^2=7+...\] then think "3 squared is 9" write \[(x-3)^2=7+9=16\] take the root, don't forget the \(\pm\) get \[x-3=\pm\sqrt{16}\] \[x-3=\pm4\]

    then solve \[x-3=4\iff x=7\] or \[x-3=-4\iff x=-1\]

    no...satellite gave enough I think. There's 2 values for x in his answer. I dont think there's a third one is a trinomial like this.
