x^2 +16x+64
x^2+16x=64
(x=3)^2=16x64
16x=64
x=4
Check this problem please

The first line is not an equation.
The second line is
x^2+16x=64
then if you are completing the square
x^2 + 16 x + 8^2 = 64 + 8^2
(x+8)^2 = 128
x+8 = +/ 8 sqrt 2
so
x = 8 +/ 8 sqrt 2 = 8 (1 +/ sqrt 2)
or if you really mean
x^2 + 16 x + 64 = 0
then
x^2 + 16 x = 64
x^2 + 16 x + 64 = 64 + 64 = 0
(x+8)^2=0
x+8 = +/ 0
x = 8

Is where the following trinomials perfect squares.
X^2+16x+64 this is the problem is does not have equal. so could you work this for me please.

Oh !!!
(x+8)(x+8)
(x+8)^2 = x^2 + 16 x + 64

In other words it is not an equation and you do not solve for x.
The trinomial is the perfect square of (x+8)
for any x
