## Homework Equations

Quadratic formula?

## The Attempt at a Solution

2(6+X) = 3+X

------

X

12+2X = 3+X

------

X

12+2X = X(3+X)

12+2X = 3X-X^2

so,

X^2+X-12

when putting it in the quadratic formula, I don't get the right answers.

the answer should be X1= 2 X2= -6

what have I done wrong? :(
