Before we proceed to learning the advanced form of completing the square, you might be interested to read our previous EduBlog post on the __basic form of completing the square__

Next, we can complete the square inside the brackets. On my previous edublog post on __“how to complete the square”__, I have shown the steps to complete the square. So we are going to use the same method to work on it.

Once we complete the square inside the “blue” brackets, bring the “2” inside the bracket by expanding.

Here you go!

On our next edublog post, we're going to show you how to __solve these equations__! Hope to see you there.
