Solving Radical Equations Part 1

Radical equations are equations that have square root terms. When solving radical equations, try to isolate the radical expression on one side of the equation and then square both sides (it is the inverse operation of taking a square root). If there are two or more terms on the opposite side of the equation, remember to draw parenthesis around that expression before squaring.

Students learn to solve square root equations by first isolating the square root, then squaring both sides of the equation.
