How do you solve #6x^2 + 13x = 5# by completing the square?
For ease of explanation - remember that the general form of a quadratic is
The constant (c) has already been moved to the RHS.
We need to make the LHS into the square of a binomial (ie a perfect square)
Step 2: complete the square by adding the missing third term (to both sides)
Step 3. Write as
Step 4: square root both sides.
