a
We try a solution by substituting the value into the original equation, and investigate if the left-hand side and the right-hand side are equal. We start with
solves the equation. Let's now test
Since the left- and right-hand side do not become equal, is not a solution to the equation.
b
We use the same method as in Part A when we now test the values in the equation
solves the equation. Next we need to test
Both and are solutions to the radical equation
c
Finally, we will repeat the process with the last equation.
Here is not a solution. Can be one?
Yes, it can!
