# Question #4fa4f

##### 1 Answer

It is a **method** to **Solve Quadratic Equations** .

Please remember that in actual practice unless you're told that you use completing the square method, you will probably not use this method.

#### Explanation:

Suppose you need to solve the following Quadratic equation by completing the square method (I have selected a problem where coefficient of

First step is to keep all terms containing

Now take half of the coefficient of the

square it, and add that value to both sides of the new equation.

In the example we have coefficient of the

Half of

On inspection we see that we have made LHS a perfect square which can be written as

Take square root of both sides and remember to use both

Solve for

or

The two roots of the given equation are
