- 9*p  - 5*p - 4
$$\left(- 9 p^{2} - 5 p\right) - 4$$
-9*p^2 - 5*p - 4
The perfect square
Let's highlight the perfect square of the square three-member
$$\left(- 9 p^{2} - 5 p\right) - 4$$
To do this, let's use the formula
$$a p^{2} + b p + c = a \left(m + p\right)^{2} + n$$
where
$$m = \frac{b}{2 a}$$
$$n = \frac{4 a c - b^{2}}{4 a}$$
In this case
$$a = -9$$
$$b = -5$$
$$c = -4$$
Then
$$m = \frac{5}{18}$$
$$n = - \frac{119}{36}$$
So,
$$- 9 \left(p + \frac{5}{18}\right)^{2} - \frac{119}{36}$$
