Solving an Equation with Radicals

Solving an Equation with Radicals


Step 1 Isolate the radical. Make sure that one radical term is alone on one side of the equation.


Step 2 Apply the power rule. Raise both sides of the equation to a power that is the same as the index of the radical.


Step 3 Solve. Solve the resulting equation; if it still contains a radical, repeat Steps 1 and 2.


Step 4Check all potential solutions in the original equation.
