Solving an Equation with Radicals - Problem 6 190 views

If you need to solve an equation with two roots that are added or subtracted, your first goal is to get them on opposite sides of the equals sign.

You might have to square both sides a second time, as in this example, to get rid of all of the square roots. Once you have solved for x, you'll need to check the solution(s) to make sure they're not outside the domain.
