I need help with algebra ASAP!

I'm in Algebra 1 this year and I really need help solving these equations.

Completing the square

1)c^2-7c= -12
2)x^2-2x-8= 0

Incomplete Quadratic Equations
1) 2x^2-2 = 16

Any advice will be appreciated!


c^2-7c= -12
What is 1/2 of -7? Square that, and add to both sides.

x^2-2x-8= 0
What is 1/2 of -2? square that, and add to both sides
