**Algebra Tiles – Completing the Square**

Visual Representation

2
**Use algebra tiles to complete the square for the equation: x2 + 6x + 2 = 0**

1 1

3
**Step 1: Subtract 2 from each side to model x2 + 6x = -2**

4
**Step 2: Begin to arrange the x2 and x tiles into a square**

1 1 x = x x

5
**Step 3: Add enough “1”s to complete the square**

Then, add the same number to the other side x2 x x x 1 1 x 1 1 1 1 1 1 = x 1 1 1 1 1 1 x 1 1 1 1 1 1

6
**Step 4: remove zero pairs**

x2 x x x 1 1 x 1 1 1 1 1 1 = x 1 1 1 1 1 1 x 1 1 1 1 1 1

7
**= New equation: x2 + 6x +9 = 7 x2 x x x x 1 1 1 1 x 1 1 1 1 1 1 x 1 1**
