i am having a minor difficulty
i've been stuck for over an hour and don't know what to do
i don't know is this right
? = "+" or ""
# = number
y=x
(x+1)squared + (y+1)squared = 6
i substitute y
(x+1)squared + (x+1)squared = 6
x squared + 2x + 1 + x squared + 2x + 1 = 6
2x squared + 4x + 2 = 6
2x squared + 4x  4 = 0
2(x squared + 2x  2) = 0
2(x ? #)(x ? #)
i get to here and now i am stuck
can u correct me if i did something wrong
please and thank you

You did nothing wrong, but not every quadratic factors.
An easier way is not to expand it.
from
(x+1)^2 + (x+1)^2 = 6
2(x+)^2 = 6
(x+1)^2 = 3
x+1 = ± √3
x = 1 ± √3
take it from here

Can someone check my answer please! I'm not sure this is right x(squared)+7x+10=0 (x+r)(x+s) =x(squared)+sx+rx+rs =x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs=x(squared)+7x+10 r+s=7 rs=10 (2)(5)=10 and 3+4=7 x(squared)+7x+10=(x+5)(x+2)
