because 3*3=9 and not 6
x^2-9 = x^2-3^2 = (x+3)(x-3)
x^2-6 = x^2-9+3 = (x+3)(x-3)+3

typo its suppose to be (x-3) (x+2)
ohh, (x-3)(x+2) = x^2 -3x+2x -6 =x^2 -x -6 and not x^2 -6
if factored is it (x-3) (x+2) or square root +-6?
roots are \(\large \pm \sqrt6\) factors are \((x+\sqrt6)(x-\sqrt6) \)
but it is not (x-3) (x+2)
exatly! its not because (x-3)(x+2) = x^2-x-6
ooh i see
(x-3) (x-2)= x^2-2x-3x+6=x^ u got an extra 5x
ask if still any doubts.
so when ever it is not a perfect square, i have to to take the square root of both side?
You have to take the square root regardless.
whenever ? when its in the form of x^2 - a^2 = 0
then shift a^2 to other side and take square root.
k thanks
welcome :)
bcs u hv 1 exttra x :)
