Solve by using the quadratic formula.
x^2 + 6x + 6 = 0
I am having problems using the quadratic formula to get the right answer. Can someone show me the steps that I use? Thanks.

Quadratic formula b(plus or minus)squareroot(b^24ac) all over 2a
so you'd plug in 6(plus or minus)squareroot((6^2)(4(1)(6)) and divide the 6 plus /\ that by 2. and then do 6 minus /\ that by 2. and you get your two solutions 
3 + or  2sqrt 3
