Now I've never been to India, but the method to which you are refering is also known as "completing the square" and here's how you do that:
First, add 13 to both sides of the equation.
Now "complete the square" in x by adding the square of half the x-coefficient to both sides of the equation. This would be:
Now factor the left side of the equation.
Rewrite the left sides as:
Now take the square root of both sides.
Finally, add 1 to both sides.
