$x^2<x+12$

Learn how to solve problems step by step online. Solve the inequality x^2-12<x. Moving the term -12 to the other side of the inequation with opposite sign. Grouping terms. Factor the polynomial x^2-x. Add and subtract \left(\frac{b}{2}\right)^2, replacing b by it's value -1. Now, we can factor x^2+-1x+\frac{1}{4} as a squared binomial of the form \left(x+\frac{b}{2}\right)^2.
