Solving Radical Equations in One Variable
Objectives:
Solve square root equations in one variable algebraically.
Solve radical equations in one variable algebraically.
Solve equations containing variable expressions with rational
exponents algebraically.
Solving Square Root Equations
Principle of Powers: If a = b then a = b.
Example:
Note: Always check your answers with the
original equation if the exponent is even in order to determine
which solutions are possible.
