2x^2-18x=0, x^2=6x+7, 6y^2+5y-6=0

also I need help on this one

SOLVE FOR X CORRECT TO 4 DECIMAL PLACES

x^2+6x+2=0 2x+4=3x^2

1. 2x^2-18x=0
try to factor first
2x (x-9) = 0
so x = 0 or x = 9

x^2=6x+7
x^2 -6 x - 7 = 0
(x-7)(x+1) = 0
so x = 7 or x = -1

6y^2+5y-6=0
(6x-1)(x+1) = 0
x = 1/6 or x = -1

x^2+6x+2=0
if you can not factor, complete the square or use the quadratic equation
x = [ -b +/- sqrt (b^2 - 4 a c) ] / 2a
x = [ -6 +/- sqrt (36 - 8) ] / 2
use calculator to 4 places

I had to solve this quadratic equation using the complete the square method. Did I do it correctly? The problem is 3x^2+18x+10= 0 (3x^2+18x+10)/3= 0/3 = x^2+6x+(10/3)=0 x^2+6x+(10/3)-(10/3)=0-(10/3) =x^2+6x= (-10/3( x^2+6x
