    Do you want me to show step by step just to check your answers or actually explain how to do the method?

    You have to factor the problem to get two equations instead of one. You just took out a negative 1.

    You don't need to find 2 ways to factor it. The end result will give 2 equations.

    Use the quadratic formula to help you factor the equation. This is the link for the quadratic formula calculator: http://www.math.com/students/calculators/source/quadratic.htm

    When it says what A B and C equals, you need to use the numbers in the equation. In this case A=-6 B=18 and C=-36

    Write that in the calculator and you should get your answer. :)

    Sorry I just noticed that it doesn't give you an answer since the answers are imaginary answers so here's another calculator that can solve imaginary answers: http://www.mathwarehouse.com/quadratic/quadratic-formula-calculator.php
