algebra 2

I am stuck this is how far I have gotten
x^2+6x=1
(b/2)^2=(6/2)^2
=

How far have you gotten? Copying and pasting the equations to solve? That's not too far.
to solve polynomials, set everything on one side equal to zero:
x^2 + 6x + 1 = 0
try using the quadratic formula for this one.
For the 2nd one, since you have basically,
a^2 = b^2, just take the square roots:
b/2 = 6/2
or
b/2 = (6/2)
That help?
