you just add 4 to both sides. that will make it \[(x2)^{2}=16\]

(x)^2 2(2)(x)+2^2 = a^22ab+b^2=(ab)^2=(x2)^2

ok so : (x^24x+4) = (x2)^2 ?

x^24x12=0 x=2 x=6? or am I doing it wrong

I think you are doing it wrong ; : x^24x12 = 0 \[\large{x^24x+416=0}\] \[\large{(x2)^216=0}\] \[\large{(x24)(x2+4)=0}\] \[\large{(x6)(x+2)=0}\] hence either x = 6 or x = 2

always remember that : \[\large{(ab)^2=a^22ab+b^2}\] \[\large{(a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2}\]

or : \[\large{(a\pm b)^2=a^2\pm 2ab +b^2}\]
