-4x2 + 9y2 + 16x - 18y +29 = 0 (I hope this is what you meant)

9y2 - 18y - (4x2 -16x) +29 = 0 (group together the x's and y's, and make the x2 term positive.

9(y2 - 2y) - 4(x2 - 4x) +29 = 0 (remove common factors)

9(y - 1)2 - 1 - 4(x - 2)2 - 4 + 29 = 0 (complete the squares)

9(y - 1)2 - 4(x - 2)2 = -25 (move constants to right-hand side)

[(y - 1)2] - 4[(x - 2)2]/9 = -25/9 (divide by coefficient in front of x or y bracket, in this case 9)

[(y - 1)2]/4 - [(x - 2)2]/9 = -25/36 (divide by coefficient in front of other bracket, in this case 4)

As you can see, we now have our equation in standard form. Our center points satisfy [(x - 2 = 0) , (y - 1 = 0)], thus our center is (2,1).
