Objectives Radical Notation The Square Root Function The Cube Root Function

Radical Notation Every positive number a has two square roots, one positive and one negative. Recall that the positive square root is called the principal square root. The symbol is called the radical sign. The expression under the radical sign is called the radicand, and an expression containing a radical sign is called a radical expression. Examples of radical expressions:

Example Evaluate each square root. a. b. c.

Objectives Solving Radical Equations The Distance Formula Solving the Equation x n = k

If each side of an equation is raised to the same positive integer power, then any solutions to the given equations are among the solutions to the new equation. That is, the solutions to the equation a = b are among the solutions to a n = b n. POWER RULE FOR SOLVING EQUATIONS

Example Solve Check your solution. Solution Check: It checks.

Step 1: Isolate a radical term on one side of the equation. Step 2: Apply the power rule by raising each side of the equation to the power equal to the index of the isolated radical term. Step 3: Solve the equation. If it still contains radical, repeat Steps 1 and 2. Step 4: Check your answers by substituting each result in the given equation. SOLVING A RADICAL EQUATION

Example Solve Solution Step 1: To isolate the radical term, we add 3 to each side of the equation. Step 2: Square each side. Step 3: Solve the resulting equation.

Example (cont) Step 4: Check your answer by substituting into the given equation. Since this checks, the solution is x = −10.

Example Solve Check your results and then solve the equation graphically. Solution Symbolic Solution Check: It checks. Thus 1 is an extraneous solution.

Example (cont) Graphical Solution The solution 6 is supported graphically where the intersection is at (6, 4). The graphical solution does not give an extraneous solution.

Example Solve Solution The answer checks. The solution is 4.

Example Solve. Solution Step 1: The cube root is already isolated, so we proceed to Step 2. Step 2: Cube each side. Step 3: Solve the resulting equation.

Example (cont) Step 4: Check the answer by substituting into the given equation. Since this checks, the solution is x = 29.

Example Solve x 3/4 = 4 – x 2 graphically. This equation would be difficult to solve symbolically, but an approximate solution can be found graphically. Solution
