What are the roots of the equation x^2 - 4x + 3 = 0

I think I was suppose to use b^2 - 4ac

so it would be -4 - (-4)*1*3 = 12 so the roots would be 12 and -12

Thank you for any help you can provide

x^2 - 4x = 3

x^2 +2(-2)x + -2^2 = -3 = -2^2

x^2 + -4x + 4 = 1

(x + -2)^2 = 1

qrt (x+-2)^2 = sqrt 1

x+-2 = plus or minus 1

therefore x=1

x=3 roots are 1 and 3
