    ok, so \(x^2-10x=24\) the co-efficient of 'x' here is 10 divide it by 2 and square the result, what u get ?

    no no.. the co-efficient of x is -10, right ? divide it by 2, you get -5, but then square it, \(\large (-5)^2=...?\)

    nopes, \((a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2\) so, \((x-5)^2 =x^2-10x+25\) so here we have \((x-5)^2=7^2\) take square root on both sides!

    when you take square root, the square part goes away! (x+4) =+1 or x-4 =-1 find 2 values of x from here...

    What you do is take that coefficient (number beside) the x with NO EXPONENT. In our case, 6.

    Take half of it, 3, and then square it, getting 9.

    Now, add that to BOTH SIDES of the equation. \[\Large x^2 +\color{red}6x\color{blue}{+9}=40\color{blue}{+9}\]

    You'll notice that the left side is now what you call a 'perfect square trinomial' It may be expressed as... \[\Large (x+\color{red}3)^2=49\]

    Notice of course, that 3 is half of the original coefficient of x, which was 6. Now take the square root of both sides: \[\Large \sqrt{(x+3)^2}=\sqrt{49}\] Notice that the square root and the square (exponent 2) cancel out. But the square root of 49 may be either positive or negative 7. \[\Large x+3=\pm7\] Bring the 3 to the other side, you now get \[\Large x = -3\pm7\] which means either x = -3 + 7 = 4 or x = -3 - 7 = -10 Case Closed :)
