The process of completing the square includes the construction of a perfect square from the members of the equation that contains the variable of the equation.

Consider the equation - 9x2 - bx = 0

The method of completing the square will include the given steps

i. Make the coefficient of x2 unity

ii. Add the square of ½ the coefficient of x to with both sides of the equivalent sign. The left hand side is still a perfect square

iii. Factorize the perfect square on the left hand side.

iv. Determine the square root of both sides

v. Solve for x.
