31. Solve the equation by completing the square. Round to the nearest hundreth if necessary.

x^2 - 6x = 7

x = 7, 1
x = -7, 1
x = -7, -1
x = 7, -1

1. Damon

x^2 - 6 x + (6/2)^2 = 7 + (6/2)^2

x^2 - 6 x + 9 = 7 + 9

(x-3)^2 = 16

(x-3) = 4 or (x-3) = -4

x = 7 or x = -1

check
1 + 6 = 7
49 - 42 = 7
