I hope you can see the image I have sent.
Step 1) Whenever there is a number infront of an ‘x’ you can half it and put it in the brackets of (x ...)^2 Where the “...” is the halved number.

Step2) using this halved number e.g 3 (from the image, we always subtract the square of it. So in this case 3 squared is 9 so we add “-9” to our equation.

Finally we bring down the constant “10” or anything that isn’t with an ‘X’ with it.
We can then do -9 10 giving us -1.

Therefore our final equation is :

(x 3)^2 -1
