Other answers:

well b is just the 14 bx is 14x but our formula calls for just b which is 14
so plug 14 into that (b/2)^2 thing to figure out your answer as to what to add to both sides in order to complete the square
oh 196
no
\[(\frac{14}{2})^2 \] what is 14/2?
7 so the answer would be 49
\[(\frac{14}{2})^2=(7)^2=49\] right
