How do you factorise x(squared)+6x=1?
I'll give you a solution in a few minutes - just so you know how to do this from now on, as this question is a little trickier than normal factorisation.

Just apply the quadratic formula, find the solutions, and express the factorised form as where are the two solutions.

No problem, nearly finished writing it out!

Just subtract 1 to make it = 0, then you've got it in the typical quadratic format. From that point, you can use brackets in the normal fashion to factorise.

Please don't post full solutions. Let OP have a go themselves first with a hint.

the roots of this equation r rational numbers I think so we were to factorise this will will have to write it in form of (x - a)(x - b) where a and b will be exact answers jn surf form. will this be correct?
