Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1focus on just x^2 + 4x what's missing to complete the square?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, so we have to complete the square for both x and y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for x it would be 4 and for y, it would also be 4 I think.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah x^2 + 4x + 4 is a perfect square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you have to add 4 to both sides to go from x^2 + 4x to x^2 + 4x + 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep x^2 + 4x + 4 factors to (x+2)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I did the math and I got (x+2)^2+(y2)^2=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you forgot to add 4 to both sides. You only added to the left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it would be (x+2)^2+(y2)^2=9
