# Completing the Square

### Factoring and Solving Quadratic Equations

In this lesson we will look at what is meant by the phase “completing the square,” and develop a step-by-step procedure on how to use the completing-the-square method to solve quadratic equations.

In this video we will start with a word problem and see how to use the completing-the-square method to solve a more complex quadratic equation: $h = -16t^2 + 32t + 6$
