# How do you solve x^2-6=x using the quadratic formula?

Mar 2, 2018

You do the math, I will show the method.

#### Explanation:

Rewrite the equation by reansposing the RHS to the LHS:
${x}^{2} - x - 6 = 0$

This is quadratic equation of form:
$a {x}^{2} + b x + c = 0$

with solution:
$x = \frac{- b \pm \sqrt{{b}^{2} - 4 a c}}{2 a}$

So you have
$a = 1$
$b = - 1$
$c = - 6$

Substitute values in above and get the answer
