Theory

Raising an equation to a power

When rewriting equations it's important to make the the same operation on both sides to ensure that the equality still holds. So, if one side is raised to a power, the same operation must be performed on the other side. In the equation both sides can be raised to the power of . However, be aware of creating extraneous when solving radical equations this way.
