    \[\text{ quadratic formula is } \\ x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a} \\ \text{ replace } a \text{ with } 1 \\ \text{ replace } b \text{ with 6} \\ \text{ replace } c \text{ with 1} \\ x=\frac{-6 \pm \sqrt{6^2-4(1)(1)}}{2(1)} \\ x=\frac{-6 \pm \sqrt{36-4}}{2} \\ x=\frac{-6 \pm \sqrt{32}}{2} \\ \text{ hint to continue } \sqrt{32}=\sqrt{16 \cdot 2} =\sqrt{16} \cdot \sqrt{2}=4 \sqrt{2}\]
