Solve a Quadratic Equation by Completing the Square 1) Isolate the terms with variables on one side of the equation, and arrange them in descending order. 2) Divide both sides by the coefficient of x 2 if that coefficient is not 1. 3) Complete the square by taking half of the coefficient of x and adding its square to both
