Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x^2+4x = 21 here, the coefficient of 'x' is 4 so, divide it by 2, and take its square, what u get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we need to SQUARE the result so, 2^2 = 4 now, we add this on both sides., x^2+4x+4 = 21+4 = 25 got this ?? notice something about left side ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, i added the result (here, we got 4) to both sides now notice that left side is a perfect square! isn't it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24 is the square of 2 x^2+4x+4 will be square of \(\large (x+2) \\ (x+2)^2 =x^2+4x+4\) so we have \((x+2)^2=25\) take square root of both sides , what u get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, split up, 3x = 6x3x \(x^2+6x3x18=0\) factor out x from 1st 2 terms and 3 from last 2.....can you ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there's no  *minus* sign \((x+6)(x3)=0\) is correct final answer! good :)
