# Use the Square Root Property to solve the equation: {eq}(c - 2)^2 - 36 = 0 {/eq}

## Question:

Use the Square Root Property to solve the equation:

{eq}(c - 2)^2 - 36 = 0 {/eq}

Quadratic equations can write in various forms. Depending on the form, we will use a method to solve them. One of the forms that can write is with a perfect square trinomial, and to solve it, we apply the following steps:

1. Isolate the perfect square trinomial to one side of the equality.
2. Apply square root on both sides of the equality.
3. Isolate the variable.
4. Express the two results of the equation.

Given:

$$(c - 2)^2 - 36 = 0$$

First, add {eq}36 {/eq} on both sides of the equation.

$$(c - 2)^2 - 36 + 36 = 0 + 36$$

Simplifying, we...
