    x^2+4x = 21 here, the co-efficient of 'x' is 4 so, divide it by 2, and take its square, what u get ?

    4/2=2 square root is 1.4

    we 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 ?

    yes, i added the result (here, we got 4) to both sides now notice that left side is a perfect square! isn't it ?

    4 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 ?

    can you solve those 2 easy equations ? x+2= 5....x =.. ? x+2=-5, ....x=....?

    Solve the equation by factoring: x2 = 18 - 3x

    Does x2 = x^2 And does the = sign suppose to be a + sign?

    I don't think you can factor that.

    so, split up, 3x = 6x-3x \(x^2+6x-3x-18=0\) factor out x from 1st 2 terms and -3 from last 2.....can you ?

    there's no - *minus* sign \((x+6)(x-3)=0\) is correct final answer! good :)
