x^{2}-10x+25-9=0
Use binomial theorem \left(a-b\right)^{2}=a^{2}-2ab+b^{2} to expand \left(x-5\right)^{2}.
x^{2}-10x+16=0
Subtract 9 from 25 to get 16.
x=\frac{-\left(-10\right)±\sqrt{\left(-10\right)^{2}-4\times 16}}{2}
This equation is in standard form: ax^{2}+bx+c=0. Substitute 1 for a, -10 for b, and 16 for c in the quadratic formula, \frac{-b±\sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}.
x=\frac{-\left(-10\right)±\sqrt{100-4\times 16}}{2}
Square -10.
x=\frac{-\left(-10\right)±\sqrt{100-64}}{2}
Multiply -4 times 16.
x=\frac{-\left(-10\right)±\sqrt{36}}{2}
Add 100 to -64.
x=\frac{-\left(-10\right)±6}{2}
Take the square root of 36.
x=\frac{10±6}{2}
The opposite of -10 is 10.
x=\frac{16}{2}
Now solve the equation x=\frac{10±6}{2} when ± is plus. Add 10 to 6.
x=8
Divide 16 by 2.
x=\frac{4}{2}
Now solve the equation x=\frac{10±6}{2} when ± is minus. Subtract 6 from 10.

x^{2}-10x+25-9=0
Use binomial theorem \left(a-b\right)^{2}=a^{2}-2ab+b^{2} to expand \left(x-5\right)^{2}.
x^{2}-10x+16=0
Subtract 9 from 25 to get 16.
x^{2}-10x=-16
Subtract 16 from both sides. Anything subtracted from zero gives its negation.
x^{2}-10x+\left(-5\right)^{2}=-16+\left(-5\right)^{2}
Divide -10, the coefficient of the x term, by 2 to get -5. Then add the square of -5 to both sides of the equation. This step makes the left hand side of the equation a perfect square.
x^{2}-10x+25=-16+25
Square -5.
x^{2}-10x+25=9
Add -16 to 25.
\left(x-5\right)^{2}=9
Factor x^{2}-10x+25. In general, when x^{2}+bx+c is a perfect square, it can always be factored as \left(x+\frac{b}{2}\right)^{2}.
\sqrt{\left(x-5\right)^{2}}=\sqrt{9}
Take the square root of both sides of the equation.
x-5=3 x-5=-3
Simplify.
x=8 x=2
Add 5 to both sides of the equation.
