This is pretty simple....believe it, or not    !!!

 

1.   x^2  +  12x

Take  1/2  of 12  =  6

Square this  = 6^2  =  36.....and that's what we need to add to complete the square  !!!!

 

2. x^2 - 8x

Take (1/2)  of -8  = -4

Square this  = (-4)^2  =   16

 

3. x^2  - 18x

Take (1/2) of -18  = -9

Square this  (-9)^2   =  81
