Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to solve radical equations and inequalities with step-by-step examples. The process involves isolating the radical on one side of the equation and raising each side of the equation to the proper power to eliminate the radical expression. The solutions must be checked to ensure they are not extraneous. Additionally, you will see how to graph the solution set for an inequality on a number line.
