Completing the square.
A level Mathematics. Use the method of completing the square to solve these quadratic equations. Give your answer in the form a(+or-)b root "n" where a and b are rational, and n is an integer.
Please help, as I do not understand fully how to do this.
Is this ok?
Yes, that's the completing the square technique..you got it fast!

Thank you very much for this. It really helped.
