Answer:

The answer is #x=3#

Explanation:

If we move all terms to left we get:

#x^2-6x+9=0#

which according to a formula #(a-b)^2=a^2-2ab+b^2# can be written as:

#(x-3)^2=0#

A square of an expression is zero if and only if this expression is zero, so we get:

#x-3=0#

Finally after moving #-3# to the right side we get the answer #x=3#
