RADICAL EQUATIONS

FOLLOW THE STEPS


1ST STEP ISOLATE THE RADICAL We need the radical in one side of the equation EXAMPLE:

(x

2

(x

2

)

+ 1 − 2x = 1

)

+ 1 = 2x + 1


2ND STEP SQUARING We need to square both sides in order to get rid of the radical sign EXAMPLE:

(

(x

2

) ) = ( 2 x + 1)

+1

2

x + 1 = ( 2 x + 1) 2
