**How to Solve the Quadratic Equation by Completing the Square?**

- Ensure the equation is in the form \( ax^2 + bx + c = 0 \).
- If the coefficient \( a \) of \( x^2 \) is not `1`, divide the entire equation by \( a \).
- Move the constant term \( c \) to the other side of the equation.
- Take half of the coefficient of\( x \) (which is `\frac{b}{2}`), square it `\left(\frac{b}{2}\right)^2`, and add and subtract this square inside the equation.
- Rewrite the left side of the equation as a perfect square trinomial, and simplify the equation.
- Take the square root of both sides of the equation, and solve for \( x \).
