You should complete the square to denominator using the following formula such that:
`(a+b)^2 = a^2 + 2ab + b^2`
`x^2 + 2x = a^2 + 2ab => {(x^2=a^2 => a=x),(2x = 2xb => b=1):}`
Hence, you need to add 1 to complete the square and subtract 1 to preserve the equation such that:
`x^2 + 2x + 1 - 1 = (x + 1)^2 - 1`
Hence, substituting `(x + 1)^2 - 1` for `x^2 + 2x` ...
