Hi! I'm new here so if this has been covered please accept my apologies.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm having trouble proving the equation from:

ax²+bx+c=0 to the solutions x=(-b(+/-)√b²-4ac)/2a

I've been told to complete the sqaure of ax²+bx+c, then rerrange to give x, but I just can't get it!

If you could show the steps you took to get there it would be very helpful too.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
